The relationship between people and plants for both food and medicine goes back hundreds of thousands of years. In the recent centuries, this knowledge has been forgotten....
Take a walk on the wild side with herbalists Kim & Vicky to re-discover the wild herbs and plants growing on Hampstead Heath and their past uses by the communities around them.
- correct wild plant identification,
- the folklore & traditional uses of herbs,
- sample some traditional foraged edibles and medicines and take home recipes
Location on booking.
Bring a pen, notebook and camera if you wish. A raincoat is also a good idea.
