Herbal experience day

Come join us for a great day learning about a wide range of medicinal herbs.  In the course of one day view  a selection of 30-40 herbs from the over 100 species growing on the farm.

If that does not sound like a lot believe me your head will be full at the end of the day.

There are every few places in Australia where you can see this range in one place. I have a sympathy for the unusual and endangered medicinal herbs and they are well represented.

From the United plants Savers listings  I have growing 9 of the “”at risk plants and eight of the ‘to watch”.  Cultivating these plants and recording how to grow them directly helps their conservation in the wild. Populations of these plants have been put at risk due to habitat loss and harvesting from the wild in an unsustainable manner.

 

The next herbal experience day is planned for 2018

TESTIMONIAL

Paul and I had a magical day at Christopher and Anne’s on the last Herb Walk of the year.  Although we are not intensely into herbs we do enjoy learning about their growing and uses and we did come home that day with heads stuffed full of plants and their properties.
Christopher is very enthusiastic and sharing of his knowledge.  We were particularly impressed with his experimentation and progress in growing so many varieties of herbs locally which could mean a good source of local product for remedies.
The gardens have so many examples to walk amongst and smell and taste that it could be a bit overwhelming if Anne didn’t provide beautiful morning and afternoon teas to break the brain drain:)  you could do nothing better than spend a day in the Tinderry.
