Australian native botanical based workshops teaching sustainable practices

At Backyard Botany we believe in providing opportunities for you to learn about sustainable living practices. It's becoming increasingly difficult in today's fast paced commercialist world to live in harmony with our local environment. Jessica Moulynox, our head Ethnobotanist has years of experience in identifying and utilising native plants and shares this knowledge during immersive workshops to ignite your senses. Classes include botany, ethnobotany, permaculture, homesteading, fermentation, gardening and sustainable living practices. If you've been feeling disconnected, would like to get away from your screens or just want to learn new skills, these classes are for you.

At your service:


Jessica Parnell Moulynox



My career in Ethnobotany began almost 20 years ago when I learnt how to forage wild native edibles. I have since completed a Bachelor of Environmental Science with a major in plant biology and a minor in Indigenous studies. Our ancestral knowledge is disappearing and, as an Ethnobotanist I aim to pass my knowledge on in fun interactive workshops. I believe connection to our local landscape is so important to the future of our health and happiness.

We are committed to sustainability and ethnobotanical teaching.
