Herbal Remedies: Fact and Fiction with Roy Smalling 
 

Roy Smalling is about to celebrate his third decade in the field of natural medicine. His core belief is that to alleviate human suffering using Nature’s Pharmacy, you must determine the difference between great medicine and great marketing. Educating the difference between the two is his mission.

Mr. Smalling knows all the tricks that marketers use to sell you vitamins, supplements, body care, skin care, and even groceries. He’ll expose some of these tricks of the trade; so you can make the right decision, naturally. Join him for a talk at our Food Truck Rodeo, from 7 pm – 8 pm.

Mark your calendars, and contact info@nassaulandtrust.org with any questions!
