As part of LBBD Women’s Empowerment Month, we’re hosting an informal meet up and talk (online).

We’ll be joined by members of the new Community Herbalism Network (read more here), and members of the excellent Mobile Apothecary will be telling us their story. We’ll talk about existing initiatives, what’s going on this year locally, and discussing how we can spread the benefits of community herbalism here in Barking & Dagenham….
As a taster of what we’ll discuss on 24th March, we’ve created some short videos with Rasheeqa Ahmad (Mobile Apothecary / Hedge Herbs), Shumaisa Khan (Mobile Apothecary) and Kathy Mason (Plantastic) about growing herbs to nourish and care for their community and green spaces. Check out our Vimeo Page to watch them all.
If you’d like to attend simply email Shaun and he’ll share a link closer to the date. For CD members who can’t get online we’ll be recording the session and can share at a later date.

All welcome!
