Naples Green Scene


We promote a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle: Rich in nutrient-dense and organic foods.

The Naples Green Scene (NGS) had humble beginnings as a Meet Up group that has quickly grown into a plant-powered community!

Founder and author of The Green Scene Diet, Linda Berson, began adapting her husband’s and her own lifestyle to whole foods, plant-based and oil-free in order to combat heart disease. She quickly observed the lack of social events and community that catered to this niche lifestyle and was determined to change that! With the intention of creating community and social events that would cater to those who had begun to eat plant-based and oil-free for health, Linda began the Meet-Up group. Since then, Linda has passed the baton to Michelle Joy Kramer and a small committed team. They have expanded the group past 800 members and begun a wide variety of education based events, spreading the NGS mission throughout the health community in Naples.


NGS hosts events to create and educate our community.
