Wellness Apothecary at Spring Fling Festival

The annual 3000acres Spring Fling Festival is next Saturday 24th September & I’m super excited to be part of it!  Join us as we celebrate the warmer months & the start of a new growing season.

The day will be packed with free gardening and sustainability workshops, a huge pop-up plant sale, kids activities, live music & food stalls in the lush grounds of the Saxon st Community Garden in Brunswick.

I’ll be running a 30-minute workshop on the day, this Wellness Apothecary workshop will include tips on growing & preparing medicinal herbs & infusions.  It’s been a long & hard winter in Melbourne this year, so a little bit of herbal loving is just what some of us need to revitalise!

This workshop will be a free teaser for a course I’m currently designing, which will be launched this Spring/Summer (more on that soon!).

I feel honoured to be part of this festival & amongst this amazing lineup of workshops:

There are also some brilliant people selling their goods and spreading free advice, including: Pip Magazine, Brunswick Tool Library, BioFilta, FareShare, Youth Food Movement & Bee-Keepa.  The Community Grocer will have a pop up fruit and veggie stall for all your grocery needs and there’s also on-site bike servicing by donation with the guys from Bikes Please.  Plus a huge plant sale of indoor and edible plants.

There’ll be vegan baked goods from Von’s Vegan Bakehouse, Kombucha from The Good Brew Co, Baked Potatoes from Carmel Hill Farm and a bbq raising funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday September 24th, 12pm-4pm
at Saxon St Community Garden,
33 Saxon st Brunswick.
