This last weekend in my local community garden in Pilton, North Edinburgh, we set about to create our very own medicine garden. Its a very exciting opportunity for us to share knowledge about using medicinal plants for health with a diverse range of local people, and to take a step towards more resilience and self-empowerment for this community.

We planted a whole lot of herbs, and look forward to up coming workshops on how to make our own remedies from them.
