Tennessee parents have a wealth of resources and information available via thoughtful nonprofit groups. I recently had the chance to meet some of the staff and volunteers who were sharing these resources at Knoxville's Natural Parenting Expo, and wanted to tell you about them. They were my table neighbors when I hosted a table for Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families.
Newborns in Need
provides newborn layette items for babies in hospitals, family crisis centers and homeless shelters.
Bob and Melinda Varboncoeur's for-profit Knoxville and Chattanooga Natural Awakenings
magazine served as the sponsor for the nonprofit vendor area at the expo.
Over in the children's activity area was the popular Imagination Library
and other groups offering education and fun for the little ones!
