GROWING HERBS & FLOWERS AT PENNYWEIGHT FARM
I'm so excited to have teamed up with Lucy over at Pennyweight Farm in Franklinford, Victoria on Dja Dja Warrung Country.
In exchange for some time helping Lucy with growing her beautiful flowers, she's generously lent me some land to have a go at growing some of my own herbs and flowers.
I've started with a few of my favourite botanicals which have been making an appearance in my tea blends - beautiful blue Cornflowers, an assortment of frilly and fancy Calendula petals, Echinacea aerial parts and fluffy white Yarrow flowers and fronds.
This season I have Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Peppermint and other medicinal botanicals warming up in the greenhouse.
Having my hands in dirt, watching plants grow from seeds through to harvesting and processing is just the most amazing experience. And so is tearing around on the ride on mower too!
Keep an eye out for some collaborative workshops we'll be holding at the farm in the near future.
