This was a great class! I highly recommend it!
Oh, I want to take it! August is not a good month for me to commit. Maybe she will offer it again in the fall.

Would anyone be interested in attending a Nourishing Traditions Cooking class in the Northwest Charlotte area around Mtn. Island Lake? We need five people. I don't have dates or times, just trying to see if there is an interest. Please contact me at tsmithae@bellsouth.net. Thanks, Toni
