Native Australian Medicinal Plants
Kemp Killerby, Flora 4 Fauna – Australia
Kemp will highlight:
- The useful endemic medicinal plants that are naturally found in South-East Queensland
- Their traditional and contemporary uses
- How they can be successfully grown in your own backyard
- How to create and nurture your very own native bush pharmacy
A range of Native Medicinal Plants will be available for sale from $5 – $10 each (cash only please).
Kemp has a love of nature inspired by his father and grandfather, and extensive experience studying and working in sustainable food production and native Australian bushfoods. Through Flora 4 Fauna, his community-based educational service, Kemp now spends his time encouraging people to use native food sources by hosting eco tours, presenting talks and workshops, native plant sales and sustainable bushfood and biodiversity projects.
