Community Herb Gardens
"As we grow gardens we grow community"
We aim to develop a herbal infrastructure - a network of community herbal gardens - to develop a sustainable practice so that we can trace where out herbs came from, know where they are grown and know they are handled with respect, to reduce airmiles and carbon emissions and to build communities around herbs: teaching people about growing, harvesting and working with herbs - From Garden to Medicine.
Our aim is to develop a network of community herbal gardens.
Do you have a space in your garden, work or community to grow medicinal herbs?
Would you like to work with us to create a community herbal garden? We will provide support, and training to get you growing, harvesting and making your herbs into medicine.
We aim to recruit volunteer 'herb helpers' to lead the community garden sessions, these people will already have some growing skills and will be provided with additional training to get your community herbs growing.
The Garden to Medicine Project will enable your community to be involved in the entire process from start to finish.
The project aims to respond to the increase in demand of herbal remedies by giving people the skills to make their own and to reduce the increased demand on the climate and global herb supplies (some of which are being harvested to extinction) by growing and using local herbs. The network will be able to share herbs where needed and extra herbs will be used in our other workshops.
