BERLIN HEIGHTS — Clinical herbalist Mary Colvin recently was accepted as a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild, an association of herbal practitioners.

This achievement required many years of training and clinical practice. Colvin is now one of two registered herbalists in Ohio.

The public is invited to join Colvin and her friends from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at Nature Knows, 50 N. Linwood Ave. to celebrate her huge accomplishment.

Colvin is certified in nutritional therapy and supports her clients in their many unique situations specializing in the balance and function of the nervous and digestive systems.

An avid gardener for more than 25 years raising vegetables, herbs and perennials, Colvin also is an advocate for organic gardening.
