Acupuncture is slowly changing Megan Neal's life, personally and professionally. She is grateful to contribute to the healing work of River City Community Acupuncture.
Upon graduating James Madison in 2007, Megan Neal spent two years in Latin America. She drilled water wells with the nonprofit, Water For All, in Santa Cruz, Bolivia and then taught English as a second language in Pena Blanca, Honduras. Upon returning to the states Megan studied organic agriculture under MOFGA in Edmunds, Maine with Tide Mill Organic. It was here she first encountered the Weston A. Price Foundation and taught vegetable fermentation classes.
Megan got her start in Richmond managing the the Ellwood Thompson Produce Department; she connected with local growers and has worked with both Victory Farms and Origins Farm, and volunteered with the urban gardening intiative, Tricycle Gardens. You might know her from the South of the James or the Oregon Hill Byrd House Farmer's Markets. Megan also recently completed a year contract as Administrator at Central Montessori School in Church Hill. With a background in agriculture and whole foods nutrition, Megan sees the human body as a microcosm of the larger whole of which we are all a part.
