The Arfon & District Herb Society is a fledgling group; the
idea behind starting the group is to give anyone who is interested in
gathering, growing, processing or using Herbs a place to come together
regularly, and informally to discuss and share their passion for
medicinal plants. The group is aimed at all levels of interest,
qualification, and ability, from those just starting out who may have a
couple of pots of herbs on their kitchen windowsill, to practicing
medical herbalists and everyone in-between.
We will discuss (amongst other things):
The turning of the year, and
what's about in the hedgerows/foraging, share our successes (and maybe
failures) at growing medicinal plants/gardening tips and ideas. Seed
and plant swap. Discuss processing herbs into teas, medicines and
cosmetics/household products at home and share our successes and ideas.
If anyone has any thoughts about the medicinal use of herbs please
share them. As I am a qualified Medical Herbalist, I can contribute
sound (but brief - it's no place for a consultation) advice on the
medical use of herbs..
Meet people, share our interest in herbs and promote/grow awareness in
the local area.
