The Meetup at Heather Haxo Phillip's house was great. Everyone who came seemed to really enjoy the food and talk.
Heather has some upcoming classes that some of you might be interested in. I am going to assist her in each of the upcoming classes- (with the exception of the Green Juices and Smoothies which looks great too-)
I saw her method of sprouting at her her house and am excited to start my own in a similar fashion. See the posting below.
