BG Ap workshop_ - Event cover.jpg

Join us in the Phytology meadow to harvest the abundance of Cleavers, a wild spring tonic herb that supports our immune systems and offers nourishment at this time of year.

We will share knowledge at Phytology with a guided plant walk before heading to the Create Place with our harvest to make a skin soothing lotion together and sample a ‘spring first aid tea’.

You’ll learn about seasonal herbal allies growing around us, and contribute to making a stock of lotion to be distributed within our local community. You will be able to take home a pot and the recipe for future making as well!

The mobile apothecary will distribute remedies on a fortnightly basis in collaboration with Refugee Community Kitchen in Bethnal Green. To find out more about this or volunteer with us, please contact Rasheeqa or speak to a member of the team at the session.

We have a limited number of free places available. If you would like to book a free place or help subsidise someone else's place please contact hari@nomad.org.uk.

Next dates: Sunday 12th May, 11am-3pm ; Saturday 15th June, 11am-3pm ; Saturday 6th July, 11am-3pm ; Saturday 3rd August, 11am-3pm
