Living Well in the Lean Season

With Kirsten Hartvig

Thursday 28th February 2019

7.30 - 9pm

In the age before refrigeration the time from Candlemas/Imbolc (2nd Feb) to Easter was called the ‘lean season’ or ‘Lent’ because there was very little food around. It was also the time for new shoots, spring greens and plants that are naturally detoxifying and full of vitamins and minerals to replenish the body after winter. Learn what to eat and drink to have a spring detox and live well in the lean season, and try some blood cleansing food herbs.
