Another lovely, rainy morning. I'm sitting in my back porch with a soft blanket and cup of tea, thanking God for the much needed moisture. And realizing I need to fill my hummingbird feeders. But first, I want to let you know about another free online opportunity to learn some basics of how we "do" herbs. I taken online courses from Rosalee previously and am always impressed with her information and presentations. But it starts today - sorry for last minute again. Check it out here and at least sign up so you can get the replays later if you can't join in live. Hey - it's free. And like I often tell my kids when I give them herbal remedies: "It's not gonna hurt you and it just might help."
I am in the process of figuring out a few classes to fit in before the weather turns cold here. Let me now if you have any requests... I'm thinking we may do an online option to discuss the information Rosalee presents in her 3 day course mentioned above. Also a make-and-take fire cider class - perhaps in my driveway to keep us all outside. Figuring out logistics for that one. I enjoy teaching - just need some ideas of what anyone is interested in. Hint. Hint. Hint.
I also want to tell y'all about a new book about elderberry that I really enjoyed reading, both for the information and for the style of writing. It is one of the few non-fiction books that I had a hard time putting down as I enjoyed it so much. It is Everything Elderberry by Susannah Shmurak, a local-to-Northfield writer. If you know me, you know it takes a lot for me to actually buy a book. I bought this one! Click here for a link to the book and to Susannah's very informative & fun website, HealthyGreenSavvy.
I better go fill my hummingbird feeders. They seem to be enjoying this rainy morning, too.
