Sunday Midsummer Herb Walk, 26th June 2011

Today’s Midsummer Herb walk in Frankendael was super.  The sun came out, so did many beautiful flowers and also 9 other lovely Urban Herbologists.  As several other people contacted me, asking for a weekend walk, I am going to offer the Midsummer walk again this coming Sunday, at 10am.  So…

Join me for another Urban Herbology Wild Herb Walk on Sunday 26th June 2011 at 10:00.

The walk will be in Frankendael Park, Amsterdam, starting at the main (old) gate.  I shall wait just inside the entrance, by the bike racks (entrance in this photo..)

Handouts, including photos, notes and recipes, will be provided.

We will…
Take a relaxed look at useful wild herbs which are plentiful at this time of year.
Share ideas about how to use them in food.
Consider some of the herbal medicine uses.
Talk about some interesting herbal folklore.
Meet others who are interested in herb foraging in Amsterdam.

The walk itself will last for at least an hour and previously we have continued chatting over cups of herb tea and cake in Merkelbach restaurant, which sits within the park.  This Sunday is the monthly organic market called Pure Markt, so perhaps you would prefer to go there afterwards to buy some tasty organic food and drink.

The cost for the walk is €5 per person.
Places are limited to 15 so please do contact me via email if you would like to attend.  The Urban Herbology www.meetup.com group can also be used to sign up for this.

I am really looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday and having a relaxed look at some of the herbs which are currently available in this beautiful park.
