Cultivate & Nest to Host Family Fair and Work-at-Home Showcase

Event slated for Nov. 13 in Hadley

HADLEY—Cultivate & Nest, a collaborative workspace for parents who are entrepreneurs, will host a Family Fair and Work-at-Home Showcase on Nov. 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in its Hadley office center.

Terra Missildine, the founder and owner of Cultivate & Nest, said the event will be akin to a table-top expo for “parent-preneurs” who work at home, and it will offer vendor space for both the businesspeople and their children, who may want to display artwork.

A main feature of the showcase will be a panel presentation offering resources and education. Moderated by Missildine, the panel will include: Amanda Kingsley of Alphay International Inc., Tatiana Berindei of Inspired Spiritual Coaching and Young Living, Sandy Skrocki of Arbonne International, and Kerri Sheppard of Usborne Books.

Other highlights of the day will include presentations on topics such as better managing the work-home balance.

All entrepreneurs who work from home are invited to take part in the event. To inquire about vendor space, contact Missildine at A donation of $25 per vendor table is suggested; attendees are also asked to bring a non-perishable item for the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.

“People are invited to come learn about the option of working at home, and, for those already working from home, come learn how to achieve a better work-home balance,” Missildine said.

Cultivate & Nest is the first membership-based collaborative workspace in the Valley to incorporate a childcare component. Located on the first floor in the Hadley Crossing business park, Cultivate & Nest offers roughly 3,400 square feet of office space that can be used by “parent-preneurs.”

Members of Cultivate & Nest pay in cost tiers that range from $100 to $600 per month, depending on amenities and level of office access. Event and workshop space is also available for members and the community at large to host family friendly events.
