The Herb Society – Members’ Event

April 24 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am

 

The Herb Society is proud to present our inaugural online members’ event. For members only and reserved for those who book a place we have a fascinating programme of short presentations from some of our Corporate Members:

Lucy Hockley, Weald & Downland Living Museum

Take a (virtual) walk through the 6 historic gardens of the Weald & Downland Living Museum. Learn more about the status of the household and the herbs, fruit, vegetables and even edible weeds they made use of in a variety of different ways in their daily lives.

 

Rachel Trenchard, Goosnargh Gin

Goosnargh Gin, founded by Richard and Rachel Trenchard, is a multi award-winning small batch distillery, based in the Forest of Bowland AONB. During the session Rachel will share how they decide on the particular botanicals to use in their gins and how one of their seasonal releases is helping to promote preservation and restoration of hay meadows.

 

Helen Kearney, Betonica   

Taking a closer look at three seasonal herbs freshly foraged from medical herbalist course provider Betonica’s base at Elder Farm in Devon.        Helen will be on hand to give us some tips for finding and utilising these fresh Spring herbs simply at home and explaining the health benefits    they each provide

 

Raffle draws will take place throughout the morning with chances to win some great prizes courtesy of AEON books.

For the first 50 UK-based members to sign up, we have been kindly supported by a number of partners to be able to provide a goodie bag (Early Bird Tickets)…UPDATE! PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EARLY BIRD TICKETS HAVE NOW BEEN SOLD
