Natural families group holding open house on Aug. 11

ARLINGTON — A local natural families group will be hosting an open house at Terrace Park on Aug. 11.

Organizer Kate Tonnessen said that the newly forming group is aimed at mothers who share similar values and lifestyle choices.

Some ideas and topics of discussion could be but are not limited to natural pregnancy and childbirth, alternative medicine and nutrition, green living and sustainable living.

Individuals interested in joining the group do not have to agree with all of the lifestyle choices discussed in the group — just to respect them, Tonnessen said.

"The goal is for this group to grow, to stay connected, be a safe place, a welcoming place, a resource for our community and a tool for learning," she said.

The group is not limited to just women — dads and parental guardians are encouraged to join.

The open house takes place at 12:30 p.m.

Terrace Park is located at 809 E. Fifth Street, Arlington.
