Yaakov Levine – Heeding the Call to Health
Plants call to us in many ways. For Some, it’s a continuation of family tradition or practice, for others, it’s a rebellion. Sometimes it’s a little insistence from the path itself that awakens our inner herbalist. So often, the folks who heed the call become dedicated and inspirational leaders in our community. Today, we’re talking with Yaakov Levine, Nutritional Health Coach at Natural Grocers, about heeding the call.
