Garden antidotes to winter blues
16 June 2014
The extent to which plants from the home garden can help you maintain winter wellness will be covered in a free public
workshop at Hollard Gardens, Kaponga, on Sunday (22 June).
Participants will look at the medicinal benefits of different plants, and learn that the list extends well beyond herbs.
A number of preparation and treatment methods will also be discussed, from infusions and tinctures and decoctions to
poultices and compresses.
Sunday’s workshop will take place in the Hollard Centre from 2pm to 4pm and will include a garden walk for which good
footwear is necessary.
The workshop is part of a year-round programme of workshops and other events at Hollard Gardens, Pukeiti and Tupare, the
three heritage properties owned and managed by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region.
