πŸ“πŸŒ½πŸ₯¦ Join us for our next Plant-Based Nutrition Webinar series - starting Sunday 12th July πŸ†πŸ πŸ₯

We have transformed our popular one-day seminar into a webinar series spread over two weeks. Numbers are limited (max 16) to support group interaction and enable everyone to ask questions. Our first two webinar series were well received and we are looking forward to meeting our third group. The program is ideal if you are new to plant-based nutrition and also if you are wanting to fine tune your diet to achieve better health outcomes. This is a great opportunity for those who have not been able to attend our previous in-person seminars.

This month the webinars will run on Sunday afternoon and Thursday evening over a 2-week period. Places are still available. Register here: www.wholefoodsplantbasedhealth.com.au/plant-based-nutrition-seminars/webinars/
