What We’ll Do

6.30 pm – Learn – Garden Herbs for Natural Health

Presented by Jenni Pemberton, Wren Herbal

  • Are you aware of the possibilities of including herbs in your daily life to boost the immune system, reduce or remove symptoms of illness and prevent infections?
  • Are you interested in using plants to improve your health?

This session will introduce you to how and why it’s a great idea to include them in your life.

While some of the knowledge and techniques from our ancestors for daily plant use has gone into oblivion, there has been a resurgence of interest in how plants can help our bodies and how to use them, so learning the old methods is important.

Inclusion of herbs/plants in our diet is proving that ancient methods still work even for treating common Lifestyle Diseases and many of my clients are achieving great results.

This presentation is aimed at sharing some of this information and helping increase your knowledge:

  • Describing many local forgotten plants that are now considered weeds.
  • Why these plants are beneficial to the human body.
  • Simple ways to incorporate plants into your daily life.
  • What to be wary of when using plants/herbs while taking modern medicines.
  • What to watch for when harvesting your plants.
  • A demonstration showing some methods of creating remedies that will support the body through a cold or flu, build your immune system, prevent infection from cuts and if time permits what to do for constipation and haemorrhoids.
  • Printed handouts will be available to those attending this class however if you like to take notes, please bring a book and pen.
