February 2018

 

February is an interesting time of the year. It’s not shiny and new like January, but not quite spring’s beginning in March. I’ll lovably call it a middle child (because that’s where I happen to fall in birth order myself). Don’t let this seemingly lackadaisical month fool you. It packs…

At that time each municipality within Outagamie’s borders put their trust in the county to create a recycling program that not only collects and processes curbside recyclable material,…
In this month when we tend to think of things related to our hearts, let’s talk about hawthorn (crataegus oxyacanthoides), an herb that can be your heart’s best friend; specifically, let’s talk about hawthorn berries. Hawthorn berries are known as a heart tonic, or nutritive heart herb, and have been…
