Incinerating Weeds

Hi, Judy, 

I would send this to you individually,  but I don't think I've got a
list of member's email addresses.  Just wanted to say I'll be
celebrating Imbolc tonight with my Moon sisters.  Shall we call you in?

They could weed, safely, if I provided samples of what was wanted to be removed. As an aside - we would also go visit gardens, an apiary, the autumn fleece and fiber event, whatever, depending on their interests. Usually very nice young adults. I stopped because the interest seems to be trending more towards AirB&B on a beach on Maui
