March Thurs 7th Jan Illingworth Herbs and Travels in Greek and Cyprus

By February 3, 2024No Comments

Guest Speaker: Jan Illingworth, Naturopath           

Topic: Herbs and Travels in Greek and Cyprus         

Thursday March 7th 2024

General Monthly Event, Please be seated 7.15 for 7.30 pm Start

Yazoo! As a Naturopath, Jan is passionate about the use of herbs and plants for health. The last issue from December 2023, included a compilation of posts from our fabulous President’s 3 month Greek and Cypriot Odyssey, that barely scratched the surface.

This talk will take us away from the tourist tracks, on a journey of discovery of the flora and fauna that are at the roots of western medicine. All with a light hearted herbie perspective and told with Jan’s incredible knowledge and dry sense of humour.  Should prove to be fascinating and fun.

Plus: Stay for Herb Tea and a bite afterwards.

If possible, please bring a plate to share and/or herbs for herb tea or assist at the tea trolley after the main event.
