Join Cynthia of MoonMaid Botanicals, Vesna Plakanis of A Walk in the Woods and Elaine Miller who has a long history with the National Park Service, as they discuss the benefits of getting out in the woods. All are avid hikers and know a lot about the Smoky Mountains. This area is very diverse and world renowned for it's plant diversity. From wildflowers famous in the Spring, to the wide array of disiduous trees, traditional medicinal species, and wild herbs, the Smoky Mountains is a wonderland of plants of all kinds. Cynthia's land, MoonMaid's Medicinal Botanical Sanctuary, is a 5 acre gem dedicated to preserving, protecting and propagating native medicinal species, many of which are endangered. A member of United Plant Savers Native Plant Sanctuary network, the land is in the planning stages of expansion to include hiking trails, programs for children and building an Herb Cottage to further our teaching capabilities.

Curtis' Cooking Philosophy
My cooking philosophy is to keep it simple and cook with naturally produced ingredients just as Mother Nature intended.
My philosophy really evolved while coming up the ranks in Marco’s restaurants. We worked only with the best local and seasonal ingredients and treated them simply. Filming Surfing the Menu cemented my philosophy even further as it enabled me to personally meet farmers and manufacturers, and visit orchards, vineyards, paddocks, fish farms, even an apiary, and much more, to truly see where food originally comes from.
Join Mr. Brett A. Scudder tonight for a look at the human impacts being felt by people from the winter season as storm after storm hits the US causing shortages of supplies, salt and effective cleaning of streets. Traffic jams, unsafe streets for pedestrians, limited walkways and snow build up everywhere creates a real sense of depression for many on top of the already depressing freezing temps.
Seasonal Depression is on all-time high levels as more people express their frustration, weariness and struggles dealing with Mother Nature's effects as she passing through.
So join us for this discussion as we look at the challenges and ways in which we can overcome them as the winter continues and more storms ahead brings more challenges.
Please share and invite your networks to join in.
Much Love Always and God bless,
