"Our experience with Evelyn from The Lion's Tooth exceeded our expectations! She provided a unique team-building experience for our employees, which included learning about the herbal plants growing wild on our farm and how they were used by our ancestors, as well as their modern medicinal uses. Afterward, our employees made their own herbal soaps and hand creams using some of the herbs we harvested on the farm. Evelyn's wonderful energy and passion for medicinal herbs and nature made the experience both intriguing and educational, as well as fun for everyone involved."
