Last night was the beginning of the Introduction to Herbal Medicine Course at Lochend Secret Garden. It is such a pleasure to work with herbs directly in the spaces that they grow, and the sun shined on us all evening. I really enjoyed the first class – infusing oils from herbs chosen from the garden and learning to explore the tastes of plants. We had a real mix of characters aged 1 to 70, and were joined by three dogs, plenty of birds, a heap of tadpoles and a chance appearance of the local fox!
