Our Vision

Imagine a World

Where it is common knowledge that a fruit based diet provides wondrous health and vitality.

Where 'fast food fruit stands' and fresh fruit markets are on every city block.

Where fitness centers, dance & yoga schools, salt water swimming pools, and creative art centers are thriving and full of healthy athletic people.

Where fruit trees are everywhere: in backyards, on city streets, anywhere where land is suitable, fruit is free for the picking.

Where cold climate cities create greenhouses to grow local fruit and vegetables no matter the weather.

Where the word 'organic' isn't used much because everything is organic and natural.

Where modern science and technology work together to create a sustainable world.

Where children are born for a future of joy and health.

Imagine people living lighter, happier, compassionately, creatively, authentically, in harmony.

By Launching The Woodstock Fruit Festival We Aspire:

To Provide An Opportunity

for people following a fruit based diet to meet in the real world and exchange their dreams, aspirations, and vision with each other.

To Encourage

the Natural Health Pioneers to come forth and share their experience and understanding with the next generation.

To Become A Stronger Voice

united in a group, raising the global awareness of the environmental and health potential of the fruit based diet.
