WILD EDIBLE & MEDICINAL PLANTS

Naughty Nettles, Mange Ta Cour and the Livingstone Brewery are teaming up to offer this great afternoon exploration of green things.

This tour is open to the complete herbal newcomer or those with existing green thumbs - We work with all knowledge levels.

First we will meet at the Livingstone Brewery (www.livingstonebrewery.com), introduce ourselves and share our first cup of herbal tea (grown by ourselves.) We will then learn some of the processes and tricks to aid plant identification of the more common plants and trees growing around us.

We will then set out and explore the land around the brewery, searching for those plants we have just learned about and learning about their history, cultural context and medicinal or culinary uses.

We will finish with a local beer from the brewery (included for free), a summation of what we've learnt and the knowledge of some new plant allies that we can find growing all around us.

A printed handout will be provided with more information & space to take notes. This tour will be postponed until the 29th in case of rain.
