Bush medicine and herbal remedies for women

Eucalyptus leaves and twigs can be used to treat a variety of ailments if prepared correctly. THE Blackwood Basin Group (BBG) is holding a free Bush Medicine and Herbal Remedies workshop in Greenbushes on Thursday April 30, 2015.

Following up from the hugely popular Bush Tucker Walk featured at their Priority Bittern and Waterbird Biodiversity Enhancement Project site open day in November, this workshop will feature expert speakers to show participants how to use native plants and herbs to make their very own ointments, balms and aromatherapy blends to use for natural healing.

Focused on women, there will be hands-on activities to concoct remedies using common garden plants, which participants get to take home.

The day features Vivienne Hansen, a Noongar woman from Brookton whose family belong to the Balladong and Wadjuk people. She is passionate about understanding traditional bush medicine, and has undertaken formal training at the Marr Moorditj Foundation, completing a certificate IV in Bush and Western Herbal Medicine. Vivienne will focus on using native plants to make ointments and bath salts with participants.

After lunch, the Toobaboo African Drummers will bring their lively performance to the day, followed up by Tracy Lansdell from Green Tree Naturopathy to show participants how to grow and use herbs to treat a variety of ailments and common complaints. Tracy is the coordinator of the Greenbushes Community Garden Centre and has a wealth of knowledge on the complete cycle of growing, nurturing and using garden plants to their full extent.

“We had such great feedback from our Bush Tucker Walk run by Zac Webb that we wanted to continue the community’s learning about the many aspects of our wonderful native bushland,” BBG Program Coordinator Felicity Willett said. “This day promises to be just as interesting with take-home goodies for all participants.”

The workshop will run from 9am-3pm at the Greenbushes Community Garden Centre and is completely free, with all food and materials provided.
