Gone Wild Herbs will be hosting a series of free drop-in herbal sessions at their Herbal Health Bar in the Garden every Thursday evening this summer. Each week will be different, with sessions covering plant identification, herbal tastings and practical demonstrations including making your own infusions and creams.

There’s no need to book, but places are limited, so do try to come on time. The herb sessions are free, but please make a  ‘pay what you can’ donation to support Gone Wild Herbs.

Gone Wild Herbs will also be selling their own herbal products from the Health Bar each week.

Disco Ball herbs Marta

Join Rasheeqa Ahmad and Steph Wehowski of ‘Gone Wild Herbs’ for the fourth and final workshop in their series of ‘Herbal Remedies for City Living’ workshops.

The end of the summer is a time of berries and richness in nature. We will explore how we can utilize what this time has to offer to prepare us for the autumn time and boost our immune system generally.

Find out about a few relevant herbs and berries in depth, how to make the most of what is around you and together make an immune supporting syrup to take home.

All are welcome, no previous experience required. The charges for each workshop are on a sliding scale, according to means: £30 – £15 per day

Bookings can be made here.
