Medicinal Garden Weeds May 2017

Medicinal Garden Weeds

Herbal Half Day – Friday 19th May 2017 at Horizons Vert, Puivert

So how often have you grown weary when pulling up nettles from your garden while muttering about useless weeds?

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) reputedly wrote:

“A weed is a plant whose virtue is not yet known”

Whatever the source, a weed is a plant with a virtue. Many weeds help repair soil, feed birds and insects and, of course, bees.

Many so-called ‘weeds’ are actually powerful medicinal allies.

Do you really know the health benefits your garden yields? This half day event aims to help you to get to know these garden friends.

Ruth at Horizons Verts has very kindly offered the use of her tranquil corner of the world, on the edge of Puivert village, as our base for the morning. Horizons Verts is in a beautiful area with both meadow and woodland.

So on to some brief details… Medicinal Garden Weeds Day

We’ll meet at 9.45 am for informal introductions and a 10 am start. We will begin by tasting a herbal tea. After tea we’ll have a chat about the medicinal uses of the tea.

Thereafter we will have a gentle walk around the grounds at Horizons Verts and point out some medicinal plants. We will aim to identify at least a dozen medicinal flowers or plants. This half day event will end relaxing with another herbal tea.

Medicinal Trees for Earth Day 2017

Herbal Half Day – Saturday 22nd April at Horizons Vert, Puivert

Autumnal Hawthorn with Berries

This year the theme for Earth Day is Trees for the Earth! So it seemed fitting to have a tree themed herbal event on Earth Day.

Trees are extremely important. They help combat climate change, help us breathe clean air and are essential for communities.

There are several trees, hawthorn being one, that are important medicinals. Hawthorn berries are gathered in autumn and flowers and leaves in spring for medicinal use.

Ruth at Horizons Verts has very kindly offered the use of her tranquil corner of the world, on the edge of Puivert village, as our base for the morning. Horizons Verts is in a beautiful area of meadow and woodland.
