If you’re not in a picnic mood, there are loads of other things to tempt you - from farm fresh flowers, to original art and so much else. Come by, check out our lovely things and say hello!

As the weather becomes colder, it’s time to start thinking about boosting our immunity.

While the advice in this blog is not designed to replace ANY form of medical advice, I have spoken with some leading naturopaths and wellness advocates in both our lovely region, @mimbeim and Tabitha McIntosh from @awakenyourhealth as well as global wellness juggernaut and holistic chef Lee Holmes of @leesupercharged for their best advice on boosting our immunity this winter.

I hope it helps!! Link in bio!
