Herbal Health Bar Weekend at the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden
Sat 30 May, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST
Step into a herbal haven on the last weekend of May with the launch of a ‘Herbal Health Bar’ at the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden with East London’s ‘Gone Wild Herbs’ collective.
Hackney Artist Steph Wehowski will be transforming the Garden’s wooden greenhouse into an apothecary style setting of fresh herbs, dried specimens, botanical drawings and herbal illustrations by artist Sophie Mason.
Herbalists Sarah Gray and Rasheeqa Ahmad will be available throughout the weekend to discuss herbs and health, and lead identification walks around the Garden. Visitors can enjoy fresh, seasonal tea tastings, demonstrations, seed plantings, and herbal tales from around the world with story-teller Joanna Moon and buy tea blends, massage oils, balms and cough syrups from the Health Bar.
The ‘Hackney Herbal’ project which this year is aiming to grow herbs at different sites all over the borough to create a herbal tea blend will also be taking part in the weekend and visitors will be able to buy herb-infused cakes and botanical cocktails from the Curve Garden café.
