Recovered junk-food-junkie, Jennifer Hooper has walked the path of binge-eating, out-of-control food cravings, and feeling ashamed. Today, she helps women reign in out-of-control eating habits, starting with their MINDS instead of their mouths. She also serves as an ambassador for the region's local grocer, Tiller & Rye. At this event, she'll share more about her story, including how she's transformed her own life using food as a foundation.
The intention of Gail's work at Blessed Maine Herb Farm is to make a positive impact in our community. Some of the ways we do that is by offering education regarding the many gifts offered by the plants, creating jobs, supporting and participating in a local food and medicine chain, making available locally grown and produced herbal medicines of impeccable quality, encouraging the wise use of land and serving as a successful model for sustainable living and local economic growth. Fun stuff!
