thumb_IMG_6720_1024A new season of Herb Walks / Plant Studies with Hedge Herbs
We enter the year with a programme of monthly guided plant walks around where I am based – so they will be on Walthamstow Marshes and other local wild areas. The plan is to go out on one Saturday each month, exploring a spot to get an overview of what is in season just then and to focus on one plant in particular, connecting with its energy and characteristics to achieve a more thorough understanding of its being. I am interested here in using the Goethean science approach that seeks to learn both objectively and subjectively – after Goethe, the poet and naturalist who believed that our sense perceptions yield knowledge as important as the information that material quantitative study gives us.
Interested to join in? Do! It will be amazing and enlightening. And an beautiful grounding way to connect with your local landscape through the year, gain an understanding of our natural cycles, and support ourselves in caring for the earth.

I invite you to come along, either for individual walks, or for the whole programme of 6 through the spring and summer.
Call me on 07784 506 494 or email rasheeqa@hedgeherbs.org.uk to find out more and book your place. You can book the whole set in advance (£40 or £25 concessions per person) or pay on the day for individual walks (£7.50 or £5 concessions)

Monthly walk dates:
Saturday 14th May
Sunday 12th June
Saturday 9th July
Saturday 13th August

    Hi Rasheeqa
    I have picked up your details in the local paper. Link4Growth is a new community group that has come to WF. We meet in Chingford on first Thursday of every month from 9.30-11.30. It is a drop in with free refreshments. Costs £3 per person. It is about community. No elevator pitch. No sales. No format. Just to meet like- minded people in the borough. We promote community events.
    We would like to extend the invitation to you? Our first meeting this month clocked up 31 attendees. It is held at GOALS near Morrisons Supermarket.

    My mobile is 07973 601 862. I’m a nurse and co- manage the event. Please give me a call if you want to chat.

    Herbal medicine is a natural medicine. Life is natural so it will helpfull if support by something comes from natural.

    Let’s we start helping people for healthier, youger for longer with something natural.
