hi, i recently moved back to my hometown in the tri-cities area after three years in southern cali. i'm missing trader jo's and the local organic farm. i'm married and have a 19 month old son who still nurses like a fiend. i've recently gotten into traditional foods/cooking. i would love to find a group of friends to meet with and possible start a co-op.

Hello! I'm here- I have two grown kids, a 6 yo, and a 2.5 yo. We've only been here a few months.

There are at least a few more of us in the area.

This is an old thread, but I though I would chime in.  We just moved here from Illinois and previously from Eugene, OR.  Missing Trader joe's too!  DId you ever find/start a coop?  We are just tartinf to find our way around.  I hope to find some like-minded people here!

Hey y'all,

 

I just wanted to say keep looking! I know there are some natural minded folks in the greater tri-cities area. I have relatives in Abingdon and have spent quite a bit of time around Bristol and Abingdon — not so much Kingsport and Johnson City, but it's all a beautiful area. Did you know that Barbara Kingsolver now lives in SW Va? Her husband has a farm-to-table restaurant in Meadowview last I heard. I'm sure with the university in Johnson City that there are some crunchy granola types there, too. Boone, NC has quite a few as well.

 

best of luck!

HI Winona,

 

We are new to Johnson City too and it has been hard to find like minded families. 

 

I have a (almost) 5 year old, and a 19 month old.  I have thought about starting a "crunchy" moms group in Johnson City to bring together families who raise their children in healthy ways.  IF you are interested or if you want to meet at a park in town, let me know!

Just wanted to let you guys know that there is a LLL and an API group that meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month which just happens to be this coming Sunday :).  LLL at 3:00 and API at  4:00.  Let me know if you have any questions!

I will try to gather a list of crunchy mamas in the NE TN area. Some are clients that i have midwifed for (I am a licensed TN CNM) over the years. So, good to read & have the info of the LLL that meets the 2nd Sunday in the Tricities area.
