Weed Identification and Product Workshop
Well known weed expert Pat Collins, from the Total Health and Education Centre in Muswellbrook, has agreed to do a workshop for us on Saturday 20th October.It will run from 10am to 4pm. During the morning, participants will listen to her identifying and talking about lots of common weeds - of the sort we all know and do not love (yet!). She is keen to identify any you bring along yourselves.
In the afternoon we will all be making a cure all ointment, a sinus ointment, a skin healing cream. a cough syrup, and cough lozenges.Maybe some tea as well.
Each student selects something to make and can then move about watching everyone else making different products, under instruction from Pat.Each person will be taking home about 6 different isproducts.
Register early to ensure you don't miss out.Please ensure you provide a contact email address and mobile phone number.
If you haven't registered, you can not participate. (insurance reasons).
WHAT TO BRING...
Please bring your weeds for Pat to identify, small jars for ointments, a 200ml bottle for the cough syrup and some small plastic zip up bags (or equivalent) for teas and lozenges. If you do not have appropriate containers, Pat can provide them for 60 cents each.Money - if you wish to by any of Pat's books. She will also be bringing a DVD to help with easy identification of 40 weeds!
