Wise Traditions 2015: A message from Dr. Tom Cowan

The message below comes to us from the Weston A. Price Foundation, board member Dr. Tomas Cowan.  I totally agree with everything.  You won’t find better food at any other conference, and I’d add that you won’t find better food at most restaurants either!

If you are considering going to this year’s conference in Anaheim, California, there is still time and you won’t be disappointed!

The conference is coming up soon! Here are ten reasons why I suggest you attend this conference:

  1. 1.I’ll be speaking there!  And you won’t be disappointed.
  2. 2.The food is fabulous – they practice what they preach in the foods they serve.  As part of your registration fee, you will eat five incredible meals.  You will not find better meals at a conference.
  3. 3.Many people come to this every year – it is like a big reunion with high energy.
  4. 4.There are forty, well-chosen, some world-renowned, speakers.  I have not seen a conference elsewhere with this many great speakers.
  5. 5.There are seventy vendors – offering great products and a chance to learn so much just by talking to each of these experts.
  6. 6.The topics are varied and interesting – Lyme disease, vaccines, fats, food, and many talks on health, cooking and gardening.  There are three to five tracks each day.
  7. 7.There is a packed schedule.  There are night time events – films and talks – and early morning movement sessions.
  8. 8.They have a great children’s program – not just babysitting – with talks and hands-on activities.
  9. 9.There are some interesting talks and activities on Monday too – for an additional fee.
  10. 10.Compared to other conferences, the registration is reasonable and they offer some financial aid assistance.

Quotes from past attendees:

I love this conference!  I love learning from so many knowledgeable speakers, eating superb meals, and meeting new people of like mind.

What I especially like about attending this conference is being in an environment with people, topics, and food that resonate with my interests, beliefs and passions.

At this conference I love the variety of presentations and the open-minded feel of the entire conference. The food was fabulous as well and, unlike many conferences about health, sustainability, etc, menu execution was practicing what was preached

A Showcase for Delicious Traditional Food

Portland Regional Conference – In Review

The Portland Regional Wise Traditions conference was September 21-22.  At least 11 local Eugene Chapter members attended.  I (Lisa) gave a presentation on Fermentation on Saturday.  There were probably over 200 people in the audience (many more than I’d ever spoken in front of before).  I was very nervous before it began, but once I started talking I was fine.  I was sorry that we ran out of time and I wasn’t able to show all of my photos.  I will be adding some of them to our krautpounder.com website.

We sold Kraut Pounders and books at our booth to benefit the Eugene Chapter, and former Eugene Chapter Leader, Victoria, sold Sauerkraut Kits (sauerkrautkit.com) to benefit the first Mexican WAPF chapter in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Below are some photos:
