  • Dear Morin, Sadly I will not be able to teach this year. I will be alone at my merchant booth for part of the war, and cannot commit to teaching. My daughter is supposed to come and help me, but she has not decided exactly when she will come. I will try to attend when she comes if possible. Hope all is well with you. I have had a very rough year, my Mom is very ill (still) and we...

  • Your best bet is diatomaceous earth. You can purchase it at any garden store. I think either Horizon or Johnny's Seeds has it also. About $12 for 4 lbs.--stuff is like flour, but very light. Easy to spread with a flour sifter--be sure you only use it for the DE afterwards!!! It does not harm anyone but those little buggers that have exoskeletons. They cannot become immune to it as...

  • Hi! I went to my local botanical garden and took a bunch of photos. I am sending them to share the greenery. They have the beginnings of an herb garden, a bit of a vegetable garden, lots o f trees, a bit of a butterfly garden. These photos were taken by me, and I am not a photographer outside the point and click of my little digital Nikon. In any event, I post this freely, and...

There are many others on the market, and sometimes a used book store can give you very nice resources. I will let others give you their favorites. One thing I learned about herbalism. No one book has everything about everything. You...

  • I think we all have our own recipe. What you teach others, what you learn in class and what you do for yourself. I unfortunately, burn myself all too often.

Much like icing a sprain. THEN apply topical...

  • Here is the First Aid Handout--still using some of your notes! The herbarium is mostly a show and tell, so I don't really have a handout. I'll see if Ihave time to put one together. Mostly references at this point. Isabella
