A Walk in the Park - A Season of Marshland Medicine with community herbalist Hedge Herbs

Experience the healthful bounty of Walthamstow Marshes with a local herbalist who knows these lands from the medicinal plant perspective. This seasonal herb walk will take place monthly throughout the spring and summer months to find the joy of the wild green spaces and observe how the leaves, buds, flowers and berries rotate through the year offering a variety of food and medicine.

You will be guided through plant recognition, folklore & history, traditional & current medicinal uses and responsible ways of harvesting and preparing plant medicines.
