21 October, 2018 at 12:30 pm til 3:00 pm£7.50 – £15.00
A regular herbal offering from Grass Roots Remedies herbal medicine co-operative: come and learn the historical and current uses of many of our beloved wild plants as both foods and medicines. We will meet at the Glencorse Centre (where there are toilets) and walk down the road to the beautiful Dalkeith to Penicuik Walkway that runs alongside the River North Esk. The walk to this path is roughly 20 minutes, and is situated amongst many beautiful trees and shrubs. We will make our way to the wonderful Three Hares Community Woodland where we will explore the land and talk about the wild autumnal herbs we find growing there, before sharing herbal tea in the the community woodland’s fantastic new hut.
We will be outside for 2.5 hours and walking slowly so remember to wrap up warm and wear appropriate footwear. Even if it’s hot in the sun it can be chilly in the woodland. The walkway can get muddy if there has been rain.
We aim to make our events participatory, enjoyable and inclusive, and will do our best to cater to individual needs & learning styles – please get in touch if you have any concerns.
