What’s NEW at the Market this Week?
What do you keep in the cupboard above your kettle? Jenny Kenneally-Clark brings The Cupboard above the Kettle to the market starting this week and her cupboard stocks beautiful healing herbal teas. These are offered with Jenny’s guidance.
Jenny said that she loves to engage with the community answering questions and contributing to local health. So she is offering her own created medicinal tea blends and she is happy to tailor blends to specific requirements.
Jenny, who is passionate about locally grown, vibrant produce and promotin
g healthy nutrition and lifestyle, has a naturopathic practice at her home in Cawongla, 40 mins south of
Murwillumbah. If you love healing teas and would like a little advice you will find Jenny in the pavilion – next to Coffee Australia.
