Join our new monthly herb harvest + medicine making workshop at Phytology & The Create Place.
The first session will take place on Sunday 7th April, 11am - 3pm.
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!
Book your place here!

About Herbalists without Borders and the Mobile Apothecary
Herbalists without Borders London have been offering support and solidarity to displaced people in the UK and abroad with herbal medicines since 2015.
In winter 2018 a root harvest and medicine making workshop organised in partnership with Phytology and St Margaret’s House in Bethnal Green, to create a stock of first-aid remedies for herbalists to take to Calais & Dunkirk, inspired an exciting model for community-delivered herbal healthcare.
In 2019 we are developing this collaboration, with support from St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, to make a programme of urban nature connection, medicinal plant cultivation, harvesting and knowledge-sharing, and herbal medicine distribution to street communities in Bethnal Green.
All are welcome to get involved.
The Mobile Apothecary is a collaboration between St. Margaret's House, Phytology and Herbalists Without Borders.
