Event Description

Not a free event, but looks reasonable for what is offered. The farm has a very wide selection of potted herbs for sale. I wanted to visit the nursery anyway, so thought I would take a class to justify the long drive from Toowoomba.


“Herbs; Natures Medicine”

Wander around the herb garden identifying and discussing some useful herbs and weeds.

Helpful handy hints on natural healing solutions for sniffles, colds, sore throats, scrapes, cuts, bruises, bites, stings, itching, sunburn, conjunctivitis, ear aches, chicken pox, scarring, digestion, diarrhoea, arthritis, memory, stress and more… This class shows you how easy it is to use herbs simply to relieve a range of complaints.

The class runs for 4 hours from 9.30am to 1.30pm, with Morning Tea at 11 - 11.30am. Try to arrive 10 minutes prior to have a cuppa and settle in.

$50 this includes a booklet of information on herbal remedies for everyday ailments, herbal weeds, and easy to grow herbs that offer a multitude of uses and some simple recipes, as well as morning tea of herbal delights.

What to bring
a hat as we will be spending some time in the garden.

Sounds like freedom to me.

I am regaining my child free life and doing all the winter things I was not able to do for a few years :-)
