Natural Health Expo
@ The Homestead Education Center
Thank you 2019 Vendors!
We are so excited to support wellness and healthy living in Starkville through the Natural Health Expo. Our goal is to connect community residents interested in natural health with alternative methods of self-care, and YOU are it. You are the thread that holds this event together by sharing your passions in a receptive and interactive way with this community. Thank you!
Become a Vendor and/or Presenter
Share your service, product, or practice with people looking for answers. All participants must fall under our definition of Natural Care for this event.
Vendors may set up a booth and have time designated for a presentation during the event. The registration fee is $35 for cottage industries and $75 for businesses.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR NATURAL HEALTH EXPO VENDORS THAT FOLLOW NATURAL CARE PRACTICES:
Practitioners: drugless therapies such as manual manipulations (chiro, massage, PT, etc), acupuncture, relaxation, counseling, herbals, homeopathy, dietetics
Products: all natural, no synthetics, no fragrances or chemicals; supplements must be organic and whole-foods based without additives such as magnesium sterate or artificial colors, etc
Fitness: most exercise and movement practices, including yoga, tai chi, marital arts (perhaps not those in the extreme)
Foods: fresh, organic, minimally processed, no additives, non-GMO, pastured
As a vendor you may speak on stage for 20 minutes, 45 minutes, or choose to opt out of presenting all together. Please let us know your preference. A schedule of presentation times and locations will be finalized a week prior to the event on the Homestead website: https://www.thehomesteadcenter.org/events-rss/2019/5/11/natural-health-expo
Please do not “sell” during your presentation. You may describe your business and products, but your table/booth is where people will go to pay for your goods or services.
Topics should fit within the Natural Health Expo mission of supporting self-care through education, testing methods, natural lifestyle products and practices, and drugless therapies that work with your body's natural ability to heal itself.
Presentation will take place outside if the weather allows and will be moved indoors if necessary. The images below show locations.
Please come prepared with any necessary handouts and let us know if you need audio-visual.
Table / Booth:
Bring your own table, tent, and materials to set up.
To give you some inspiration for table/booths, below are a few images from our Fall Homestead Day.
You may arrive at 9am to set up. Please pull up to the front of the Homestead to unload, and then move your car so that the driveway remains clear.
There will be a customized Facebook event linked to your business or personal page of which you are a co-host. Feel free to edit the description and image to better represent your presence at the event. Invite your network and share as the date draws near.
The Homestead will promote the main Natural Health Expo Facebook event.
Download and print a flyer to hang in your business or share with those not on Facebook. Share this flyer via email or in a newsletter if you have one.
If you feel your practice, service or products support wellness and healthy living, and you wish to connect with community residents interested in self-care and natural health, consider becoming a sponsor of this event.
