Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal: September Segment
Learning Through Fall Harvests
Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News! Each month, Hilltown Families’ Founder & Executive Director, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).
This monthly segment continued on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the first day of Autumn. This month Sienna and Ashley talked about community-based educational opportunities embedded in fall harvests, fall foliage and fall festivals:
Looking at where you live through the lens of seasonal changes and learning about your local landscape by means of community engagement, helps strengthen a sense of place through interconnections.
Feeling connected to where you live is a vital ingredient in the recipe for creating sustainable and resilient communities. Autumn is just one example of a seasonal catalyst to use to help connect you and your family to where you live through community-based learning.

Mass Appeal is a live weekday program that airs at 11am on 22News (Springfield, MA). Our next visit to the Mass Appeal studios will be Thursday, October 22!
