Kids and Herbs a naturally simple class for parents

Kids and Herbs is Live!

This is what I have been working on for the past few months! This is why the blog has been so slow! Only so much time with 2 little ones!
There is tons of info and over 7 hours of instruction!

This was so much fun!

Kids and Herbs- a naturally simple course for parents herbalist Angie Goodloe

The coolest part of this is for one week only, Kimberly and John Gallagher the creators of Wildcraft are giving away a FREE Wildcraft game with the course! The launch is at 9 am PST this morning!

We had so much fun creating this course. I have to thank John Gallagher, L.Ac., CCH from herbmentor and learning herbs for all of the work he put into this, as well as putting up with my TOTAL ignorance when it comes to technology!

If you are not a member of the learning herbs email list, and you have not heard about this course, you can check out the details HERE (plus learn how to make Elderberry syrup just in time for flu season!). If you love herbs you should definitely sign up for the learning herbs list, the offer free recepies and videos, all about herbs and health- it is an awesome resource!
