It's a mother of a newsletter

Hello Fiddle Heads People!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothering caretakers out there.

(did you know that mother's day began as an anti-war sentiment in 1870?)

I love being a mom and I'm grateful for the best teachers in my life, my kids. And I'm most grateful for our mother Earth who must be hurting a lot with all these freakish things going on. Take care of your mother! I have a quote in the cafe that says:

So check in with your mother including
our mother Earth, ok yo? (this means YOU!) :-)

So, we've had another busy and fun week. We're playing catch up on nut milk bag orders. *whew* We have some new helper bees comin' in to the cafe to help me. (thank you helper bees!) We have a LEVEL 1 class scheduled for May 17th and workshops scheduled to be held at Hunger Mtn Coop in May and June. Please contact me if you are interested in the May 17th class that runs from noon until 4 pm.


What's new in the shop? Buying club is extending its services with a weekly local farm products list available... contact me for details... I have many more herbs online now (see picture below.) We have some new Offhand Designs bags here, local herbal creatrix Sandra Lory delivered some LOVELY herbal elixirs and I finally got my order from Health Force Nutritionals (including Elixir of the Lake). Plus new books and gee, every time I write these little newsletters, I realize how many new items I have yet to post on the website! (new flavors of Pacifica Perfume products, charcoal rounds for incense, FES flower essences and the list goes on.) *sigh* oh wells, it keeps me doing fun things…

75+ ayurvedic and medicinal herbs & culinary
spices - ain't they beautiful?
