"This medicinal plant walk is a collaboration. I encourage people to come along and share their stories with local plants, to share their cultural traditions. Alongside your stories I will share my knowledge of local plants that I craft into medicine. We will wander up Bethunes Gully towards the summit of Mt Cargill/ Kapukataumahaka",
