I am running another medicinal herb garden tour at Figtree community garden- Albert St, Wickham.
Join us for our 3rd annual medicinal herb garden tour of Figtree community garden in Newcastle! Learn which medicinal plants grow locally, as well as ways to use these herbs for your health and wellbeing.
Did you know you can clean your teeth with sage leaves? or that thyme tea relieves asthma? Meet the memory herb Brahmi as well many other brilliant medicinal herbs that grow right here in Newcaste.
There will also be opportunties for permaculturists, herbalists and gardening enthusiasts to share their stories about growing and using medicinal plants.
Please bring $5 on the day. This money goes towards buying some more medicinal plants for the garden that we will plant on the day!
