GILFORD — Beans and Greens Farm is offering two unique educational events this Thursday, August 22.
From 4-5:30 p.m., Clinical Herbalist Sara Woods Kender will lead a fun and informative Medicinal Plant Walk around the forest and fields of Beans & Greens Farm. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and shoes and bring a notebook and pen to record notes. Cameras are optional for capturing visual data.
Kender specializes in the use of food as chemical-free medicine and skin care. She incorporates dietary and lifestyle changes along with herbs and supplements to help people form a complete path to health and wellness. "Here in the Northeast most plants that grow on our roadsides, in your back yard and even the deep woods offer us nourishment as food as well as nourishment for healing", states Kender whose love of nature and its power to heal began as a child, when she would spend hours in the woods near her rural home in Alton, NH. Cost for the Plant Walk is $15.
For those who struggle with a lack of energy, local Holistic Health Coach Sarah Sachetta is offering a free lecture outdoors in the Beans & Greens Pavilion from 6-7:30 p.m. She will explain to participants how to make good choices about which foods are the best to eat to increase your energy and vitality. Sachetta, who worked in the traditional healthcare industry for over 12 years before pursuing holistic health care states, "I decided that I wanted to do more to help people achieve health and happiness". Receiving her education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Sachetta who is also a N.H. native, was trained in more than a hundred dietary theories.
