Have you ever wanted to know more about the medicinal plants that grow all around us and how to use them to support your health?

Spend two and half hours with qualified Medical Herbalist Melinda McDougall in beautiful Brockwell Park and discover how you can use commonly-found plants to bring balance and vitality to your life. 

Herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years. Modern scientific research has given us even more insight into how medicinal plants interact with the human body and how we might use them to heal what ails us.

Plants you may discover on the day include Comfrey, Cleavers, Hawthorne, Elder, Dandelion, Ginkgo, Plantain, Nettle, Lady's Mantle and Yarrow. Learn about their folklore, recent scientific discoveries and how to use them safely and effectively. Finish the session with a herbal infusion at the wonderful Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses in the centre of the park and explore the herb garden.
