“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
– Margaret J. Wheatley
Community, in it’s most basic sense, is a means of survival. Humans and animals search for and strive to remain a part of a united group. Community has been a vital part of gathering food, defending from harm, and building shelter. These days, though, community isn’t quite so life-or-death. In 2018, community is more of a means of thriving rather than simply surviving.
At Rosewood Market, we are passionate about creating a strong community because we know we truly are better together. We have a big goal here: supporting every person we meet to live their healthiest and happiest life. This goal in itself requires massive collaboration.
To expand upon the inspiring community we see in our store everyday, Rosewood Market has enlisted the support of some leaders around Columbia, SC. These leaders range from fitness experts to registered dietitians and everything in between. They share Rosewood Market’s most fundamental value: respect. Respect for those around you, your environment, and yourself. This translates into a healthy lifestyle, environmental awareness, and a genuine desire to uplift your neighbors.
Our ambassadors already support powerful communities in their own facets of the wellness world. Our goal is to unite these communities because we all share such similar values. We know that we can create change in our community through our community if we work together.
This work expresses itself in many ways, with giveaways and events being our go-to’s. Our aim is to, first, speak to a wide audience that will stand with us by participating in a yoga class or by reaching out to their friends, and then, second, provide this audience with tools they can use to better themselves, like the opportunity to try a new food or receive a free week of classes at a local fitness studio. Check out our team (listed below) to be the first to know about and join in on all the exciting work we do.
The Rosewood Market Ambassador Team
The Market and our team have independently discovered what we truly care about: healthy living. It starts within through nourishing and moving our bodies, but later extends outwards into educating and supporting the next to come along. We have our mission, so now we must fuel that passion into creating change. And change is forever a work in progress.
