Medicinal Plants

>Home >Projects >West Preston> Medicinal plants

Adrian from Grey cliffs permaculture has always had an interest in herbs and herbal medicine. His recent studies into his son's alergies and reading books such as the "Exzcema Diet" and "Cure Your Child With Food" have made him realise just how important the food we put into our bodies is.

Adrian has planted a lot of medicinal herbal plants but his bigest issue is loosing track of them in a thriving permaculture garden.

Adrian is looking forward to doing some training with Sarah Cowell from Teasense.
