Welcome to Local, Fresher, Better
Earth’s Bounty, East Mississippi and West Alabama’s monthly festival offering fresh produce, homemade food products, fun and education demostrations, live entertainment, children’s activities, and free health screenings has been joined in a major collaborative effort by the Greater Meridian Health Clinic, which has announced it will be the presenting sponsor for the 2013 series of festivals.
As part of the joint effort, Greater Meridian Health Clinic will offer a variety of health screenings at each of the seven Earth’s Bounty festivals in 2013. Established in 1986 to provide health services to underserved residents in Lauderdale, Noxubee, Kemper and Winston counties, Greater Meridian Health Clinic also has a satellite program through a mobile unit that performs vital screenings and other health-related services to other counties in East Mississippi.
The 2013 edition of Earth’s Bounty will be expanded from the six festivals held in 2012 to seven festivals. They will be held on the first Saturday of each month, beginning on April 6. The other festivals will be held on May 4, June 1, July 6, August 3, September 7 and October 5. All festivals will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Singing Brakeman Park, adjacent to Union Station in downtown Meridian.
