Online Workshop: Growing herbs – Plan your herbal year – live on Zoom

Hackney Herbal is a social enterprise promoting health and wellbeing through herbs. They help people discover the creative and beneficial uses of herbs.

Winter is the perfect time to start planning a new herb growing project. Join us for a session that will help you prepare in advance for the growing season ahead. In this informative workshop, we’ll go through the entire year in a herb garden, and get you all set to make the most out of the growing season.

We will cover:
– the best time and different ways to propagate herbs
– life cycles of different plants and what that means to us
– seasonal tips on how to keep your plants healthy throughout the year
– how and when to harvest a variety of herbs
– what is available to forage at different times of the year
– drying and storing herbs

By the end of the afternoon, you will have a handy guide packed with information, tips and ideas for each month of the year.

This workshop is suitable both for beginners and those who already have some gardening or growing experience.

Ticket price of £20.00 includes the 2-hour online session along with detailed handouts that will be emailed over to you. It also includes signposting to places where you can source materials from (for UK).
