Giving Back

For some people giving back is a natural part of their every day like having that cup of coffee in the morning.  My customers can feel good about a healthy portion of session fees going right to rescue efforts for horses and other animals, including those little unseen hero's of our ecosystem, the pollinators.  As the Founder of Pollinator Friendly Alliance, I like to share my exuberance about the colorful and intriguing world of pollinators. This week, I asked two of my pollinator protector friends to join me in an exhibition at MOSES Organic Conference in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.  Here's a little sneak preview of the exhibition by Sarah Foltz Jordan, Heather Holm, and yours truly.
