A True Metamorphosis, Natural Living with John Palmer
In an idyllic setting in the rain forest John Palmer enabled a group to reconnect with natural living.
This journey began with an exciting meal of bush foods where new foods and concepts were introduced.
The Quandong was one of these bush foods. The nut of the Quandong needs to be boiled before opening to eat, but it has a unique savory flavor and a soft enticing texture.
Next to discover all the plants growing around the house.
We saw how the soil was worked and kept strong and alive for the plants to grow in the intense summer heat.
Next into the forest to discover new foods.
Then back for some more exciting bush foods followed by a lesson on how to build no dig gardens from scratch.
More special herb teas and nut sweets and a special movie then home with lots of exciting new foods to plant. It was hard to say good bye to such a beautiful way of being but it was back home to try and recreate what we had learned.
