Please let me know if you would like to host any of these classes at your house, business, or any other location. I am also open to other ideas you have for classes that will be relevant to help empower others in wake of Hurricane Sandy, and in the advent of being prepared for other future disasters. All classes are by donation. Email me at Dan@returntonature.us
