Explore culinary and medicinal uses of plants in a relaxed and interactive workshop.
An exploration of Midsummer herbs
In a relaxed and friendly session taking place via zoom you are invited to join herbalist Maria Billington who will be sharing a variety of ideas for using herbs.
The workshop will be interactive with an opportunity to make your own seed-bombs, watch demonstrations and ask questions about the uses of plants. Maria will be taking a look at the rich bounties of Summer – exploring some of the wonderful plants that are abundant at this time of year. She will examine which ones are good for us to forage, use in both medicine and food and how we can encourage more diversity.
