May Events

Those of us who enjoy gardening are certainly aware of the cooler than average temperatures and cloudier skies of April, 2022. It felt good to turn the calendar to May this morning and look forward to warmer temperatures and sunnier skies to speed the appearance of our perennial plants and the germination of the annuals we will be sowing this month.


Here are a couple more things to look forward to in May!


How to Test...

Lise Wolff, through the Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism

Register for this free, online class through the Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism

The Problem:​

You or a loved one is not feeling their best. Based on reading, a class, or your intuition, you have

a few good ideas of herbs, flower essences, etc. to try. Maybe you've tried a remedy,

but it did nothing or made you feel worse.

The Solution:​

Lise Wolff will teach you how to pinpoint which remedy will feel best and at what dose

for you, clients, or loved ones. A handout will be provided in class and recording.
