Bill Pullman, an actor who stars in the hit NBC show 1600 Penn, was recently featured in The Fruit Hunters, a documentary about fruit enthusiasts who travel the world to seek out rare and unknown fruits. In the film Pullman is accompanied by fellow fruit enthusiast Ken Love through the jungles of Hawai’i to search out these fruits together. Michael Arnstein, event founder, said ‘The Fruit Hunters film showed Bill’s love for the ultimate health food: fruit! We want to share in that passion with Bill at the Festival. I’m sure he’ll be very comfortable surrounded by so many fruit eaters.’ Arnstein believes that Pullman’s involvement in this film supports The Woodstock Fruit Festival’s goal of incorporating more fruit into a person’s daily diet.
Pullman’s enjoyment of fruit extends beyond the movie screen. He helped start a nonprofit organization, Hollywood Orchard, in 2011 that focuses on collecting unpicked fruit from trees and donating it to food pantries near those neighborhoods. Pullman understands the benefits of eating locally-sourced food because it benefits the community. The Woodstock Fruit Festival promotes this same message by working with local co-ops in the area to provide some of its fruits and vegetables for the event. ‘As an influential Hollywood movie star, he has the unique ability to educate a large audience about the joys and health derived from fruit. We hope he’ll accept our VIP invitation. He would be a great participant to our event’.
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!’
