Due to the church courtyard construction we will use the northeast door of the education building, this is located on 34th avenue. Look for our sign!
Thank you, the NCHG

"Kitchen Remedies" with Kathy Tran
on Wednesday, August 2

Kathy will show us how some of the common herbs and spices you may already have in your kitchen can be use to heal us and taste great!! We will get some new ideas on putting together some awesome recipes and at the same time doing good for our bodies. Kathy will show us how to make Fire Cider, why it's so healing, and some other folk remedies. We will serve one of her favorite recipes for a cold, Lemon Ginger tea with cayenne pepper. And Matthew Wood's recipe for cucumber water. Sounds refreshing doesn't it

Kathy Tran, a woman of many interests, added herbs to her lifelong passions several years ago. She is also a graphic designer, artist, puppeteer and mom. She got sucked into the herbal rabbit hole after a hike with an herbalist in Northern Minnesota. It lead her on a tangent that has been life changing. She has studied with some amazing and inspirational teachers: Lise Wolf, Francis Bonaldo, Erin Piorier and Matthew Wood.

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
