happened this past summer:

June 24 2017: a day to celebrate the medicinal plant of the year : Birch

at 11am, I will give a talk about the therapeutic properties of birch (and its parasite, chaga). The event is in French, but I can take questions in English

Through the day, there will be birch sap tasting and visit of the site where the event is taking place: les jardins du méandre. You can see the greenhouse, garden, orchard and the animals. You will be able to learn more about this educative farm and buy their products (or mine), and learn how to contribute to their goal.

Medicinal plant walk

Those walks, lasting around 2 hours, will allow you to learn how to identify wild medicinal plants and  how to use them. Inscription at the cost of 25$ per person. The one in Ste-Béatrix will probably be bilingual, but I can always answer questions asked in English or provide English names of the plants

  • Day on plants for maternity: August 12th, 2017
    •  A whole day based on maternity, from the beginning of pregnancy till the first challenges of motherhood. You will see how to help this incredible natural process: which plants can heal the most usual symptoms of each trimester, which plants are contraindicated in pregnancy and why it is so. We will also see how best to prepare to the experience of giving birth and which plants can help potential problems in that moment.

During this day, we will also meet this new plant allies in the garden…
