Next Meeting: Wednesday, November 7

Gardening by the Moon's Cylces (& how these cycles effect all activities)
with Jane Hawley Stevens



From the time Jane Hawley Stevens chose her professional path, it was clear it was with the plant world. For over 30 years she has specialized in herbs. In 1987 Jane started producing herbal products made from herbs she grew on her farm. Certified organic since 1990, she still grows and produces herbal products from the 130 acre farm in the Baraboo Bluffs, Four Elements Organic Herbals (fourelementsherbals.com). Her products are inspired by the healing qualities of herbs and align with the power of Nature.

Special Announcement:

Dear NCHG members,
My boyfriend is a metalworker based in St. Paul and he's making a small batch of high quality tincture presses to sell to other members of the herbal community.
The presses will be 3" diameter x 3.5" tall, about 4 oz.- 8 oz. capacity, and the components are all food-grade stainless steel. The price is $100 and the presses will be ready by the end of January. Below are photos and video of the first prototype — the final version will have a few modifications including a welded top piece and a squatter shape. Please let me know if you might be interested in purchasing one, or if you have any questions — you can reach me at saracelia@gmail.com.

Thanks! Sara Nelson,
NCHG member
