More and more parents are looking to create a healthy and sustainable future for their children and are seeking the support and information to do so.

"We invite parents to join us in a new chapter of the Holistic Moms Network that is forming in Decorah," said Kelly Searcy of Decorah.

The Holistic Moms Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting moms (and dads) with an interest in holistic health and green living. The chapter will hold monthly meetings on a variety of topics including organic food, breastfeeding, massage therapy and positive discipline in coming months.

In addition, the group will be forming playgroups for moms with babies and preschoolers.

The local chapter welcomes moms from Decorah and the surrounding areas to join them for an open house Saturday, April 13, at Discovery Happy, 222 E. Water St., Decorah, from 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
