A well planned herb garden can offer harvests throughout the year for seasoning and preserving
in the kitchen, making home remedies for everyday complaints or adding fragrance and elegance to the home. Over the centuries herb use has varied as lifestyle has changed and we will be looking at recipes tailored for our busy lives today. Herbs have always been used to add to the quality of life, whether in flavours, fragrances or with their healing and antiseptic properties. This new one day course will show, using hands on practicals, how to use herbs in the home.
Some recipes will be fragrant, some tasty and others safe plant medicine. Led by a medical herbalist, the course will offer guidance on basic methods and ensure participants know the benefits and cautions of gathering and use
