A Taste of the Enchantment Yet to Come…

The below video will give you a small but vivid taste of what you can look forward to if you plan on attending this September’s upcoming Traditions in Western Herbalism Conference.

Please Download, Print & Share THE NEW COLOR POSTERS for the TRADITIONS IN WESTERN HERBALISM CONFERENCE Your help is kindly requested, sharing the new trifold brochures for the conference, and making time to put up some of the matching posters.
