Have you ever wondered what weeds grow in our local area and how they can be used in different ways? We will be joined a number of herbalists, foragers and artists to explore our green and park around us for a mix of wild weeds. Taking time to look at our natural growing weeds and learn about the different uses of some of these common weeds. The walk will start at the Company Drinks Bowls Green and lead us on a journey around Barking park to find edible and non-edible weeds, medicinal plants and plants used to dye natural fabrics. We will then head back to the pavilion for a demonstration on how to create natural dyes from the common weeds, as well as some well-earned drinks and snacks.
