Every now and then we come across someone who is truly skilled at what they do. Patricia is such a person when it comes to plants and their healing properties. Several times she has helped me with issues with quick and lasting results when the doctors just shook their heads. She is also a patient teacher who explains things in a down to earth way. Working with herbal medicine is like breathing for Patricia, and if you can make time for this opportunity, I urge you to do so. You will be better prepared to take care of yourself as well as your family members right from your own garden. This is going to be great! Our space is limited to 12 and we already have five who are registered. Please let us know as soon as you can if you are going to take advantage of this really golden opportunity.
