There is a lot of interest in wild plants at the moment. Perhaps because there is so much green around us, here in the city. To help more people appreciate some of the edible, medicinal and interesting herbs, growing within the city, I’m offering another Urban Herbology Walk, on Friday 8th May 2012, from the main gates of Frankendael Park.
The walk will start at 11am and every one interested in finding out about wild herbs, which can be found in central Amsterdam, is welcome to subscribe.
My previous walks have been great fun to organise and very well received. We will take a relaxed look at the bounty of midsummer herbs to be found in and around the park. The walk will last about 90 minutes and will probably end at the lovely cafe/restaurant Merkelbach, situated just inside the main entrance of the park.
Cost per participant will be €8. Maximum 10 places. Previous walks have been oversubscribed, it is essential that those wishing to join me book ahead. Please email Lynn.Shore@gmail.com or call me on 0627 596930.
During the walk you will…
Receive a useful handout, to refer to after the walk
Learn how to find and identify some safe, useful, local herbs,
Learn how to harvest with respect for the environment,
Learn how to use herbs safely in several different ways,
Receive some tasty Urban Herbal recipes.
And of course you will get the chance to meet other folk who like to know a little more about what’s growing beneath and above them! If it sounds interesting to you then please contact me.
