We're teaming up with our friends at Phytology to host SOLIDARITY MEDICINE-MAKING! Kicking off at the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve, join community herbalists Rasheeqa Ahmad and Shumaisa Khan for a community root harvest, the rootstock you help to gather will be made into medicine for refugees currently living in camps across France. The group will then walk down to the Create Place, where Rasheeqa will guide participants through making a simple cough syrup for personal use over the winter months.
