October Happenings

There are so many great events in and around the city this October that I thought I would do a roundup so you can either check them out yourself or meet me there! I'll be out and about at quite a few and would love to see some friendly faces, whether we're old friends or just meeting one another!

Join the W.E.L.L. Summit Community in Boston on October 8, 2017, to celebrate the launch of Latham Thomas's new Book, Own Your Glow. Join us for an afternoon to get your glow on followed by a tea time chat with Latham and fellow author and yogi Sara DiVello where Latham will share her wisdom, advice, and rituals for owning your glow and crowning the queen within. All attendees will receive a copy of Latham's book, and VIP attendees will also be treated to a yoga class with Sara. Purchase tickets here.

This fall, Barbara Rietscha, owner of Field and Vase by Stow Greenhouses, will be leading a series of hands-on floral design classes. Each class features locally grown, seasonal, and fresh-cut flowers artfully chosen so each participant can create their own unique and lovely bouquet. Join the team at BPM Kitchen to learn the basic techniques of floral design, color composition and care instructions. While you design your arraignment, you will be treated to a wine tasting of three different wines by Alan Howarth of the Massachusetts Wine Shop. You will also sample cheeses from local Massachusetts farms, compliments of Appleton Farms. Purchase tickets here

Thursday October 12th, Oktoberfest at Dorchester Brewing Co. hosted by The Nature Conservancy

If you like beer, you should love forests. America's forests are the source for more than half of our nation's water — and beer is 90% water. But today a forested area the size of Colorado is in need of restoration, so beer's main ingredient could be at risk.  Join The Nature Conservancy at Dorchester Brewing to celebrate forests, water and beer and to learn how you can protect them all. There will be food, games and a quick talk with Alison Bowden, director of rivers, coasts and oceans for The Nature Conservancy in Massachusetts! The event is free and open to the public (21+), but space is limited so please register: http://bit.ly/OktoberforestTickets
