New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
The Woodstock Fruit Festival is extending an invitation to Ingrid Newkirk to attend the Festival this summer, which will be held in Diamond Point, New York from Sunday, August 18th through Sunday, August 25th.
Newkirk promotes awareness about how the decisions that people make and the products that they buy have an effect on animals. Part of Newkirk’s message is that she wants to help educate people about making less of an impact on this planet. Michael Arnstein, founder of The Woodstock Fruit Festival, shares the same message by promoting a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Arnstein created this Festival with the intention of bringing people together so that they could learn about eating a healthful diet and form long-lasting friendships.
"Ms. Newkirk is making an incredible effort in bringing awareness to how other creatures are unfairly treated. We think that she would be a tremendous asset to The Woodstock Fruit Festival and we would be honored if she accepted our invitation," states Yuliya Yakhontova, Festival Director for The Woodstock Fruit Festival.
Arnstein’s efforts are paying off, as the Festival continues to grow bigger year after year. The annual event is now is its third year with the largest group of attendees projected at well over 700.
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!"
