Last Wednesday I went up to Wester Hailes to teach an evening’s session about making herbal ointments with a group called ‘We are What We Eat’. The group is part of a new project in Wester Hailes called Edible Estates which is transforming greenspaces in the estate into flourishing community gardens and food growing areas. Its a wonderful project and everyone who I met there was very inspired about the changes taking place in their area. The herb workshop went down really well and we made some really diverse and beautifully coloured ointments. Photos courtesy of David Jacobs, local photographer extraordinaire. Thanks David!
