The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to Ken Love to attend the Festival this August. Love was recently featured in The Fruit Hunters, a documentary about fruit enthusiasts who travel the world and seek out rare and unknown fruits. Michael Arnstein, founder of the event, shares, "The Woodstock Fruit Festival would be honored if Mr. Love would share his love of fruit with our event." Arnstein believes that Love’s message in this film supports The Woodstock Fruit Festival’s goal of incorporating more fruit into a person’s daily diet.
Love, a tropical fruit horticulturist and co-owner of Love Family Farms in Kona Hawai’i, manages a website called hawaiifruit.net that helps educate the public about how to properly grow, select and eat various types of fruit native to Hawai’i. "Mr. Love was one of the first people to introduce me to the incredible diversity of fruits through his pioneering website hawaiifruit.net," says Arnstein. Love also researches and works on projects that help support farmers to become more sustainable through agritourism and product development. His focus on promoting local fruit falls in line with the Festival’s aim to source locally and promote co-ops and other resources in the area.
The Woodstock Fruit Festival strives to address the many health advantages of eating fruit-based as well as environmental benefits. The festival strongly believes that one of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of the Planet is to eat more fruit! Some of the speakers for the 2013 festival include well known raw vegan athletes and health pioneers: best-selling health author Dr. Douglas N. Graham, champion trail runner Tim Van Orden, founders of one of the popular raw food websites 30BananasADay.com, YouTube favorite Dan ‘The Man’ McDonald, Tony Wright who is an author in the evolutionary scientific community, internationally-published fruitarian author Anne Osborne, and expert on children’s diet and nutrition Karen Ranzi. Festival speaker and 30+ year veteran fruitarian gymnast Robert Lockhart says ‘we live in a world where the human form is taking on ever-increasing dimensions and obesity, heart disease, and cancer rates are growing at alarming rates. The need for a healthy, ethical, and sustainable diet has never been higher. If you want to die young but as late as possible, embrace the Fruitarian Lifestyle!
