Jules Bright: Wild Food & Medicine of Aotearoa

Jules is a barefoot forest dweller with a huge appreciation for what we have right here in Aotearoa. She spent 10 years travelling the Planet living with many Indigenous cultures and learning with these sustainability warriors. Jules is an initiated WisdomKeeper, Pipe Carrier and Reiki Master and enjoyed 10 years of surgical nursing & ambulance work before becoming a naturopath and medical herbalist. Jules is now taking her message to the World through her natural NZ native skinfood ranges: Bright Earth & Pure NZ Skinfood, products that are 100% natural, wild-crafted and enjoy fair-trading with our sisters in the Pacific.

Journey to our sacred plants and learn of the medicine they want to share with us. We will look at foraging with 7-generation thinking, sacred connection and sustainability. Explore 5 forest plants that we can now invite into our lives, for magic and medicine on a daily basis. Jules will show you how to utilise them in beautiful and tasty ways – oils, vinegars, honeys, teas, infusions, lotions & even wine. This workshop will help us understand what is growing around us and to bring our focus back to our relationship with Aotearoa’s flora and fauna and to become one of the Voices of the Forest. 

Bring a cup and try some native teas. There will be other delicious samples to try too.
