We will study the art and science of plants and how to integrate them into your animal’s lives. I am always amazed at how animals respond to plant therapy.
I have been working with plants and animals for 23 years. Animals consistently teach me, in the most subtle ways, that they know what they need.
Natural therapies are on the rise, and the new trend is pet remedies. There are some fantastic things on the market, and there are some scary things on the market. This class will help educate you on working with plants, equip you with the knowledge to purchase safe products, learn how to make remedies and be an advocate for your animal's wellbeing.
I invite you to come and study the art and science of the plants and learn how to integrate them into your animal’s lives. (please note when I say plants I am speaking of working with herbs)
