    Do you think there will be enough plants up by Thursday or would it be better to wait another week?

      These classes are great for beginners! I think meeting the plants is the best place to start with herbal medicine, and then you can buy a book if you want!

    This event is rescheduled to May 2 due to weather not allowing the wildflowers to be shown on the nature trails!
