Bush Medicines + Botanicals Collective

The Bush Medicines + Botanicals Collective is a Maganda Makers Business Club initiative, supported by our partners at Good Return and the Menzies Foundation who are helping us to support Kimberley Aboriginal women to engage with small business.

In August 2022, the Collective had the opportunity to be hosted by Nyawana Lexie Trancollino on Gidja Country, East Kimberley. We thank our facilitators Pat Mamanyjun Torres of Mayi Harvests and Gabriel Rahman of Balu Australia who helped the participants better understand eco dying on silk scarves, candle making, soap making and bush medicine making processes.

Local women left feeling inspired and excited about the possibilities, so watch this space.

Feel free to touch base with us if you would like to become involved with the MM Bush Medicine + Botanicals Collective.
