Our local volunteer and herbalist Leila Mayne, began volunteering at the beginning of this year and has been working hard since then in the walled garden to create a dedicated medicinal herb garden, for the school and local community.
It is a wondrous sight to behold the bountiful fruits of her labour!
THANK YOU LEILA!!! We believe it is essential for us to learn the lost traditional art of apothecary gardening for our health and wellbeing.
From Leila we have learned there are a myriad of natural remedies and tonics that surround us all of the time, but we are oblivious as we no longer have this knowledge; a traditional local knowledge that would have in the past, been passed from generation to generation.
We want to reinvigorate this tradition and knowledge…
