Topic: The Easiest Way to Cultivate More Energy and a Longer, Rosier, Healthier Life
Speaker: Jan Tucker
Jan Tucker is a certified level 5 Qigong healer and trainer, a level 2 Reiki practitioner, and author.
She studies Qigong with International Qigong Grandmaster Chunyi Lin, founder of Spring Forest Qigong. 
Jan pursued Qigong to strengthen her immune system and prevent recurring bouts of
bronchitis, asthma, allergies, 
eczema, digestive issues, and depression.
Recognizing the power 
and holistic health benefits of Qigong, she now offers these benefits to
others through Qigong Movement & Meditation Classes and individual Qigong healing sessions. 

Saturday, January 25: Pruning! Pruning! Pruning!
The community is invited for our annual demonstration and hands-on pruning event at Rose Haven. 
Membership will have a registration table as people arrive.
There will be a “Caring for Tools” station.
The next station 
will be a demonstration by Ray and Bonnie on gross pruning
an out of control bush to a manageable size).
Virginia and her team 
will show the finer details of pruning – eliminating dead wood,
the center of the bush for better airflow, remove any thin weak growth,
prune remaining canes to an outward facing bud.
Clean-up is the last but a very important step.
The waste material is placed in the disposal 
bin and not in a compost bin. 
This prevents diseases being unknowingly passed on to other bushes. 
Master Consulting Rosarian Frank Brines will answer advanced rose care questions at our final Rose Station.
join us in helping our community learn to prune at Rose Haven.
We need 
many willing hands to create a lovely blooming garden in the spring.

Families in the Garden will continue their third Saturday of the month programs.
(hiatus during June, July, and August)
Families in the Garden programs are held at Rose Haven garden at
Jedediah Smith Rd in Temecula in the Tree of Life garden area.
@ 9:30-10:30am
