Midsummer medicinal herbs: Fresh forage on your doorstep

Join ELL & community herbalist Rasheeqa (Hedge Herbs) for a Saturday morning wander around the varied plant-scapes of Finsbury Park, exploring the health-supporting actions, uses and preparations of the medicinal herbs, flowers, shrubs and trees we find. Sharing knowledge about history, folklore, current research and practical applications in herbal medicine, we shall open the world of our local healing cabinets.

We’ll conclude the session with tastings of fresh-gathered seasonal plants made into infusions to experience the plants sensorily in our own bodies.
