Our latest Workshop series is running on Wednesday nights from February 20th – March 13th 2019

 

We are excited to be joining again with Woori Community House in Woori Yallock to bring you another series of workshops. Our herbalist Caleb Armstrong will help you to discover the health benefits of  herbs you can find or grow in your own garden.

Caleb Armstrong is a pharmacist from Seville Village Pharmacy. He has been growing herbs for their health benefits here at Yarra Ranges Herb Farm for four years, using them in teas and other health products. He uses his knowledge of  the chemistry of plants to apply the traditional use of herbs as Medicine to a modern setting. Learn how to grow your own herbs and how to turn them into Medicine you can safely use at home. 

All sessions will include a take home booklet, recipes and your own product such as a tea, cream or an infused oil which Caleb will help you to create.
