Gordons Bush

Our trip to Gordons bush was on Tuesday. We were lucky to have Awhina from the museum come with us.  She walked around the track with us talking about some of the native plants in the bush. She shared information about them and how you can use them as a medicine.  Awhina explained how traditionally Māori people use to use these plants for different things.  Also how they could heal wounds and help if you were feeling unwell.  Many people still use these methods and ideas today especially if you are stuck in the bush and need food and drink.
