University of the 3rd Age (or U3A) is a community organisation located in Maryborough. U3A means University of the Third Age, a learning co-operative of older people which encourages healthy ageing by enabling members to share educational, creative and leisure activities. The only qualification for membership is to be in your third age. No educational qualifications are needed or given. Teachers and learners are all members of U3A. We organise our own activities, drawing on the skills of fellow members. Our program is developed from the interests of members and the community's resources. Join up: it's a great way to meet and make friends. Please visit their website for more information and what is coming up. The link is below. www.u3amaryborough.org.au/classes.html...
Herbs have been used traditionally for such a long time. There are many different ways to use them. You can make cups of tea, use them in your meals, make them into oils, vinegars, tinctures, glycerites, extracts etc.
One herb that I particularly like is Mullein. Mullein is a pretty plant in my opinion. I love the furry leaves and the yellow flowers. It's one of those plants that I love to use to help support my respiratory system. I make it into a tincture and just take a few drops, usually in the morning and before I go to bed.
I am holding a workshop on 4th May, to show how to make a mullein tincture, along with some other beautiful herbal oils and infused honey.
Let me know if you are coming and I'll send you details of how to pay the deposit. The workshop is limited to just 10 people, so secure your spot today.
Have you been watching all the exciting work that has been happening at Primrose Gardens? The Maryborough Community House Garden group has been so busy over the last few weeks getting everything going and their efforts are really showing.
