Join the grassroots Herbal movement and experience hands-on, practical medicine making using commonly available plants.
Learn how to identify these plants, where they grow, how they are cultivated, how to harvest them, their medicinal properties and how to harness these properties to make simple, but effective remedies.
Participants will take home their hand-made herbal elixirs and recipes, which will nourish them through the winter months.
Facilitate a connection with the natural world and the seasons by reclaiming medicine and taking health into your own hands, literally.
The Perma Pixie (Taj Scicluna) is passionate and motivated to inspire and educate people to live more nourishing and regenerative lifestyles with a deep connection to Nature.
Using her skills of Permaculture and Herbalism, she reminds those wishing for a deeper sense of purpose that individual and collective action can generate change and reformat the current state of humanity.
Being a fringe dweller, The Perma Pixie straddles the worlds of nature connection and professional business, hoping this will ripple through to others and create larger effects beyond the scope of her reach.
She intends to create a fusion of ancient wisdom with modern times, weaving the awareness of the past with the knowledge at present to form a synergy that will benefit future generations.
This is where functionality meets alchemy, a marriage of the mystical and practicality, an awareness of the internal and external landscapes which can exist in harmony.
