An early evening event exploring the edible and medicinal plants that thrive in the city on Hampstead Heath. The course will be run by herbalist and Kew researcher, Kim Walker, otherwise known as https://www.handmadeapothecary.co.uk
The Handmade Apothecary are a team of medically trained herbalists who are passionate about sharing the lost, traditional knowledge and uses of herbs with others and the community, through running workshops, walks and talks on herbal remedy making, natural beauty and botany. Their aim is to help others to re-establish a bond with nature and use plants and natural ingredients for health, home and self-care.
All London walks last about three hours, involving safely picking and eating various leaves, berries etc as we go along with herbal remedies, tinctures and creams to try (made from different wild ingredients we previously picked), learning to identify plenty of edible plants and discussion touching on numerous topics including, nutrition, medicine, herbalism, botany, cookery, horticulture and local history.

Kim Walker & Vicky Chown met whilst studying Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster, became friends and set up Handmade Apothecary as a way to share herbal medicine with local communities. They now work from a narrowboat, travelling across London and beyond using the plants they find along the way to create healing remedies & recipes.
