Online class.

Register directly with CMBG:

Longtime nursery grower Jeff O'Donal will discuss those often overlooked or forgotten factors that go into choosing trees and shrubs for a new landscape. While the setting itself dictates size and shape, also important to consider are tree health, the root-ball structure (whether in a pot or B&B), rate of growth, and adaptability to a new site. All this and more goes into choosing the right specimens for the right place, ensuring they thrive long into the future. Whether or not you’re a seasoned landscaper or gardener, this topic is always relevant to our practice. Come with questions and testimonials to share after the one-hour presentation.

The Heart-Brain Connection


with Carole Freeman, York Adult Education

Calendar Jan 18, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Science has found that the heart has actual brain cells of its own and connects with the brain in 4 ways, neurologically (through nerve impulses), biochemically (through hormones), biophysically (through pressure waves), and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions). The heart has such a significant influence on our brain and whole health, a new discipline called neurocardiology has emerged. In this class, we will harness this new science and practice the same tools and techniques of HeartMath Solution used in a study of employees at a California State agency. In that study, participants “experienced significant reductions in stress, negative emotions, and fatigue; increased peacefulness and vitality.”

These classes are in person at the York Adult Education, or livestreamed on your computer.
