New classes offered by Natural Health & Wellness School of Natural Medicine.
Back Yard Medicine

(These two programs have been merged to form one class)
This program is offered on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 until 5:00 PM. I am sure that we will be staying late most days with questions and answers, but that time is not required as part of the program.
The next class will start July the 28th and run threw September 22nd, with no classes on September 15th.
The Back Yard Medicine class is a VERY hands on program that will introduce participants to locally grown and or widely available Herbs and plants that can be utilized to better your health.
The curriculum covers:
- Identification of over 60 different herbs and plants

This is the introductory part of the program to the second half. Each student will be given a small amount of each of the herbs we will be discussing in the class.
