The Secret Garden Club meets on Sunday to discuss herbs and medicinal plants. We'll look at the ways in which herbs have been used to enhance food over centuries and also how, before the advent of modern medical science, the herb garden was also in effect, a family's medicine cabinet.
We also have a guest speaker: Elke de Wit created B-Amazing, her own natural skincare range centred on the amazing properties of beeswax. She uses herbs extensively in the B-Amazing range and will be explaining how essential oils are extracted from herbs to use in her face creams.
We've also got some ideas up our sleeve (almost literally!) for growing herbs when you don't have much in the way of outdoor space, maybe just a patio, a balcony, or just a windowsill - including the return of the Secret Garden Club's ingenious vertical garden and how to set this up.
All this and a themed tea created and prepared by MsMarmiteLover - book your tickets for Sunday here.
