December 2012 Wild Weed Walk 2 with Allan WIlton

Standard

A big thank you to Allan and Colleen for hosting a blockbuster end to the Astrotas calendar. Welcomed some new members and Nilah had the good sense to add a singalong to round it off.

Thanks also to Trevor for taking the photos which we will use to create an ebook for our member’s reference at some stage as well as decorate this website. In the meantime I will point you to an excellent article on one of the weeds identified and discussed by Allan our december astrotas wild food walk – Ribwort, plantain – growing worldwide Use for cuts, bruises, scrapes and stings , it’s even safe for cats topically applied – temporarily stains skin/fur a tea colour. I got stung by a jackjumper on the toe over xmas and the kitteh got another rash so I had a chance to test this. Messy but effective, cheap and available when the vet /chemist/doctor is shut! After I made the poultice wrapped with a little gladwrap – for the cat’s rash i bandaged over the wrap with a gauze as well then removed when the sting has subsided or it’s dried too much about 30 mins .
