Herb Folk is an informal herbal learning community located in Gubbi Gubbi/ Kabi Kabi country on the Sunshine Coast. It's all about connecting deeply with nature through plants, and we look at how to use herbs in daily life. And the best part!? We get to do share our nature-loving, herb journey together!
How will it work? Each session will be different, because there's a whole world to explore together. It could range from:
learning deeply about one herb at a time
chats about herbalism on the Sunshine Coast,
specific organ systems, health issues or health skills, and
In our initial Herb Folk workshops we'll be diving deep into one plant at a time. The reason is because there's SO MANY great herbs and plant allies, and meeting them all at once can be a little overwhelming, like hitting up a big party where you know no-one, except maybe Turmeric.. who doesn't know Turmeric these days!?
By taking it slow, and learning one herb at a time, our learning will be richer and deeper and we'll have a better opportunity to confidently integrate it into our home healing and cooking repertoire.
Collaboration Each event is a collaboration with wonderful local herbalists and naturopaths who want to share their wisdom, insight and deep relationship with our plant friends.
"My idea of a good herbalist isn't someone who knows the uses of forty different herbs, but someone who knows how to use one herb in forty different ways"
I am deeply grateful to the Gubbi Gubbi/ Kabi Kabi custodians on whose land I live and work. I honour their deep connection to their ancestral lands and I pay my respects to their elders past, present and future.
