Announcing The Second Annual The Pharm to Table
a virtual experience benefiting food share of venture county & tender life maternity home
Ventura, CA (October 31st, 2020) – The Ashe Academy in partnership with The Pharm, has launched their second annual social good community outreach initiative, The Pharm to Table. The Ashe Academy’s work is predominately involved in preparation for higher education, but we can’t forget about the circumstances facing our communities today, especially during unprecedented times. The year 2020 has without a doubt impacted all of us from our daily lives, work, mental health, and physical health. This event has grown from a meet and greet to a virtual experience, with yoga courses throughout. We’ll be highlighting the importance of Yoga & Meditation with a conversation moderated by a friend of the foundation Keisean Raines. We’ll also do a Mental Health Check-In conversation moderated by our Board VP Camille Black.
As always we hope to build meaningful partnerships that help address, in part these harsh realities that may be the largest barriers to our access and subsequent success at large. So this event is incredibly important to us, not just in tradition but in the potential impact on our community.
On November 21st we’re going live on Facebook:
The Importance of Yoga & Meditation Discussion: Moderated by a friend of the foundation, Keisean Raines will be joined by our very own Natasha Ashe, Natalie Lowry, and The Pharm instructors, Lauren, Snyder, Jiling Lin, and Liz Little to discuss the importance of Yoga and Meditation in both practice and how it has impacted their experience of this year.
Mental Health Check-In Discussion: Moderated by our Board VP Camille Black, this is a discussion with other Mental Health professionals to discuss different tips and practices so we can check-in with ourselves mentally. Camile will be calling in live from her Baby B + Comfort Me Tea Boutique & Tea House, so stay tuned on this exciting mother-daughter joint black business venture!
