Also, Katya will be offering a free one-hour talk once/month through the fall focused on a different topic each month. The talks will be covering herbs and home remedies that will be of use for your everyday health needs. These talks are meant to help educate you on how to use herbs in your daily or seasonal lives, but are not meant to be "medical" in nature, so will be covering common issues and concerns that herbs can help with, not delving into chronic or complex health issues.
Please do contact us in advance if you plan to attend, so we know how many people to expect.
