Upcoming Workshops and Events:

Crafting your Own Bitters– ZOOM class! Tuesday, March 10th.  Register thru Merryspring Nature Center. Bitters are great! We know for a fact they help us to digest our foods better, but there are some bitters that are better suited for some people that may not be the best for you!  (Better Bitters! lol) Melanie Scofield will address the best herbs of choice to add to your personal bitters blend and how to create the best herbal blends in regards to your personal constitution, what plants work synergistically together, and what actions you want to get out of them. For example, do you have difficulty digesting fats or proteins?  Do you have heartburn, or sluggish digestion? All of this will be addressed with time for Q and A at the end.
