  • Herbalists Without Borders UK is an umbrella group for herbalists seeking to offer support and solidarity to all those experiencing displacement both here and internationally, in response to the refugee crises that we are seeing today. We have made a website with information about our work and resources that you can use if you want to be involved, particularly around donating for medicines and activities. We are launching Pay-It-Forward Medicine-Making workshops around the country where you can learn skills in making herbal remedies like chest rubs, with the medicines made going to people and communities that can benefit from them. Watch this space for news about upcoming workshops in London!

    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.
