Hello. I'm in Blacksburg, so I'd like to give you the info your seeking, but I really am not a joiner, so I haven't checked out the resources your seeking. We do have a LLL, they used to meet at the library, but I'm not sure where they are now. I had no problems BF'ing (and still BF with my 3 yo), so I never checked them out. I've heard good things about them, though. I don't think we have API and I don't know anything about FNL/FCL. I also don't know of any babywearing or diaper-free groups. I suppose that if I had gone to LLL I would have tapped into groups like that more.
We do have 2 great natural foods stores, Eats & Annie Kays, and they both have lots of messages on the boards there about various groups. And you'll meet lots of like minded folks at the farmer's market, downtown on Wednesdays & Saturdays and the fresh food days at the YMCA. We have a good CSA and an active co-housing community.
If there is any other info that I can provide, let me know, by e-mail is best as I haven't been on MDC too much lately. I work from home & have 2 preschoolers, so I can set my own schedule, but I try to return e-mails promptly.
