LA RICCHEZZA DELLE ERBE SPONTANEE - dott.ssa Silvia Navini, consulente Just

La natura offre tante di quelle ricchezze che il più delle volte passano inosservate…abbiamo sperimentato con i nostri ricami quanto le erbe spontanee siano in grado di offrirci bellissimi colori con le tinture naturali. In questo pomeriggio vorrei proporvi un incontro con Silvia Navini, consulente Just, per conoscere le proprietà erboristiche di alcune erbe e come queste potrebbero aiutarci nella vita di tutti i giorni per renderla più piacevole.
