CREATIVE Collective

We are hosting a CREATIVE collective to showcase various inspiring products, activities, ideas, businesses to motivate you to gro and foster all dimensions of your whole health.   There will be hands-on learning opportunities, take-aways and of course…wine 😉  And we want you to bring your friends to gro the love and enjoy this special spring night out!  Registration incentives outlined below.


Let’s kick off the evening with chocolate and wine!  Anne from cochu and Karla from Ruby Red Vino will guide us through some ‘hands-on’ experimentation with our palates and get the night started right!

      +           =     

We will then break into groups and partake in each of three different rotating sessions where you will engage, learn and depart with your own gifts:

Conversational EQ 

Michelle Hargreaves is an ICF Certified Professional Coach and Facilitator with a style that is holistic, objective and whole hearted.  Through simple ‘game play’, Michelle will show us how to play “Conversational EQ” – a deck of cards that apply neuroscience and game dynamics to help people motivate themselves to be more productive, engaged and connected.  You will be astonished at how quickly and authentically you will connect with your gro comrades during this session.  Take your own deck home to practice engaging in meaningful, real conversations with those you care about.


Breanna Hendriks is the owner/creator of Planted Rocks, a cool local business borne out of adversity and creative thinking.  Get “dirty” and create your own terrarium to take home – a beautiful feature for your space with the proven health benefits of reduction of anxiety/stress, sharper mental focus, purified air, lowered heart rate and blood pressure name a few.

Natural skin care

Skin care is a component of “self-care”.  We all want to look and feel our best and healthy skin can be a powerful contributor .  Lana Curle works as a Natural Choice Advisor at the Co-op providing expert advice on vitamins, minerals, probiotics, homeopathic, herbal remedies and nutritional supplements.  Lana also has a personal passion for creating natural skin care products and empowering consumers with knowledge to use everyday pantry items to enhance their skin care regime.  We’ll get “cleaned up” with Lana and take home some tips, tricks, recipes and alternatives to support our self-care.
