Adults looking to increase physical activity and social engagement have a couple of new options with more on the way at local parks. Providing residents with a no-cost environment to engage in fitness for all levels is priority for Buncombe County Recreation Services and have been a top request by community members. The two new fitness zones were partially funded by a $10,850 Get Out and Get Fit grant from ExoFit and Barrs Recreation.

“Communities across the country are finding outdoor adult fitness zones result in substantially more exercise,” according to Josh O’Connor, Director of Recreation Services. “By providing these options for our residents, we can remove the barriers that keep some of them from getting the exercise they need, increase their opportunities to work out, and make the experience more enjoyable. Through careful site selection, we want to make exercise fun, promote friendships, attract new users, and improve health and quality of life.”

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
