FRUIT AND FRUIT GROWING: JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED

May 17, 2014 from 10:30am - 12:30pm

California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG) presents a roundtable discussion with Dr. Andrea Seiffertt, an osteopathic physician who is nationally Board Certified in both Internal medicine and Integrative and Holistic Medicine. A lively speaker, she’ll share some surprising things about the latest medical understandings of the role of fruit in a healthy diet. She’ll also talk about how the organic gardening and orcharding lifestyle promotes good health, and the importance of healthy soil ecosystems not only for our plants but also our bodies, in a big Circle of Healing.

ABOUT DR. ANDREA SEIFFERT
In addition to her busy local practice, Dr. Seiffertt volunteers teaching meditation, cohosting a teen sports radio program, and has also participated in medical relief work, going to Haiti twice after the 2010 earthquake. Her undergraduate background in environmental science has led her to promote a philosophy she calls Sustainable Health, connecting patients back to the planet with local food, natural cycles, and community participation. She currently sees patients at her office at 136 W Cota St in Santa Barbara.
