The summer has flown by and the nights are already starting to feel shortened by the earlier sunsets. The shorter nights have not stopped us from showing up each week and working hard until it is too dark to continue. This week Denise shared her knowledge of herbs with us and she taught us how to utilize the many benefits of medicinal herbs.
