Sovereign Hill
Weed Walks

Sprwinter is springing!

I'm out of my winter hibernation and ready to forage my way around Sovereign Hill in Ballarat.

Join me on a walk through the cottage gardens and laneways of Sovereign Hill, searching for my favourite medicinal herbs and weedy friends. We’ll chat about their use in days of yore and how you can include them in your daily life. Along the way we'll gather up a foraged cuppa and finish up with a botanical infused snack.

Hedgerow Series:

Join me as we forage the hedgerows of Central Victoria, where I'll introduce you to a few of my favourite seasonal herbs.

Each session we will be out in the field, identifying one herb, discussing it's folkloric, medicinal and culinary uses. We'll gather what we need and head back to my cottage kitchen where we'll cook up a tasty treat and blend up a herbal preparation.
