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!

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.
