I wish I could!  I'll be at the NE one-if anyone's going to go let me know!

I am planning on going! I was going to go to the one in 2009 but my son came 3 weeks early. Can't wait! I hear there is a camp there for kids to attend. Is it any good?

I was going to go last year to the NE but the kids Camp filled up before I registered. It fills up VERY quickly so if you are thinking about it decide quickly if you are want the kids camp portion!

Oh, I would really like to go to that SE, looks amazing!!!! I don't know how I would wing it. I am going to try.

 

re; Oatstraw,  I know I have asked before,  and I'm sure some of you mamas are gf, so, do you make oatstraw infusion and are you o.k. with it.

 

I have occasional oats, not really often at all but I haven't noticed a problem after. I was wondering how oatstraw is different from oats.

 

It seems that every time I go to MRH to buy some herbs they are out of nettle & rrl, I guess they really are used by many :)

does anyone have another company they trust and can recommend?

I think moms bring their kids back year to year. The kids looked like they were having fun. The toddlers, maybe less than the "elementary aged" children. The tween girls looked like they LOVED it.

Just wondered about this yesterday as MRH is out of Nettles again. My friends tell me it is my fault. lol

I'm glad to have a back up source!

Every person I've heard from with gluten issues, including celiac has said the Oatstraw infusions are fine for them.  I know many who have chosen not to "risk it" though.

volunteer!! what a great idea! 

Do I just email them offering whatever it is they  need? 

Are you all bringing kids with you? I would have to bring probably 2 . I should probably go on over and checkout  the website and email them. THis is getting exciting! yay!

I'm finally getting around to reading Healing Wise. It's a wealth of awesome info! I'm so impressed. I must admit, when I first ordered it through interlibrary loan, and opened it up, I was going to take it back without reading it. It was too...mystical...for me. But I gave it another try tonight and, while I'd already been doing nettles and oatstraw due to this thread, I'm now hooked on herbals! I didn't know violets were so good for you! I'm going to grow a ton of them in containers on my front porch this year, now. And I've asked a friend that owns a farm if we can pick dandelions there (they spray where we live). She said no problemo. Sweet! And my containers on the back patio will be all nettles. I've already ordered the seeds.
