Staying Healthy with the Seasons, Using Food and Herbal Remedies–November 4th Saturday, 1 pm (New Date)
As we gear up for Fall and Winter, we can use locally grown food and healing botanicals to prepare our bodies and keep us healthy. Seasonal eating is a concept our ancestors understood well. Before mass transportation, people ate what was local in their bioregion in a particular season, and this style of eating is best for our general health.
Join Morrie Shafer, herbalist, certified health coach, historian, and naturalist for a fun class discussing what it means to eat seasonally, and how we can incorporate these principles into daily life. We will prepare recipes and share food, as well as discuss herbs for Fall/Winter and sample different herbal preparations.  Class fee: $25.  Deposit required
