Spring Weeds – A workshop for Royal Paddocks Allotments plotholders

Saturday 11th May
Mary Newing, who is a medicinal herbalist, ran a workshop for 9 plotholders about the beneficial properties of a range of plants commonly dismissed as ‘weeds’ – dandelions rich in potassium, nettles high in nitrogen etc. After a walk round to identify some of these plants they were used with cider vinegar to make infusions. Mary says that the only plant she hasn’t yet found a use for is bindweed!
