Sandy Johnson, Author & Retired Teacher

Anyone can be a poet! Start your poetry journey by learning the process of writing the Japanese style poem of Haiku. Bring along a photo of a special person, place or object as inspiration as you create your Haiku. Sandy will share examples of her writing as well as Haikus of former students as she reviews writing terms and guides you in the steps to creating your own Haiku. When your poem is complete, you’ll craft it into a decorative card.

Included with the class registration is a copy of Sandy’s book, Wisconsin’s Rock Island – Images in Paintings and Verse with a CD of her song “Rock Island” performed by folksinger and tall ships’ captain Tom Kastle of Madison, WI.

Quietly opens the heart

peppermint plantMary Mraz, Your Health is Your Wealth

Join Mary Mraz to discuss healthful tips to keep your body healthy and vibrant! During our lifetime we learn bad eating habits and lifestyles. Eventually, as we age, those bad habits catch up to us and we find our health depleted and are suffering. Is there anything that can be done? Knowledge is self-empowerment!

With 18 years of herbal knowledge, Mary obtained her education from The Natural School of Healing and the Dominion Herbal College, along with many hours of self-education. She will discuss the following:

  • Common food additives and sugar substitutes and their effects on the body.
  • What is in your drinking water?
  • Worms and parasites commonly found in the body. Yes… this is true!
  • Wellness maintenance tips to support overall health.
  • Herbs to aid in inflammation.
  • Herbs used for overall healthy living.

Don’t delay! Register right away as classes may fill quickly. We also value our instructors’ time, so classes may risk being canceled due to low early enrollment. Thank you!

Jackie Johnson, ND, Planhigion Herbal Learning Center

Humans have used plants for life and survival since the beginning. We will discuss how herbs have been used in the past, and how there has been a recent resurgence in their use as we want to use what we grow (and know to free of toxic chemicals). We’ll discuss categories of herbs and how they work, and provide examples of easy ones to start growing and work with. We’ll blend and sample a few teas for specific purposes, and make a tincture and a syrup mix to take with you for when a flu or cold strikes.
