Scared of the malls during the holiday season? Instead of subjecting yourself to claustrophobia (and spending lots of money on stuff like creepy fruitcakes and musical neckties), consider making a few gifts this year. Stop by the El Dorado Nature Center's Alternative Giving Exhibit for lots of easy-to-make ideas.
The wonderful Herbalist Jule James is teaching an HERBAL GIFTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS class, too. In this workshop, students will make and take home a wide range of herbal baths, teas, creams and soaps. December 7, 2008, noon-2 pm. Please call 570-3111 for rates, information and registration. Her workshops are fun, informative, and ideal for noncrafty types, too!
