A place for tourists, visitors and locals alike to learn about herbs, permaculture and enjoy the Scottish countryside.
Alongside Grow G63 I am growing a community medicinal garden. You will find the herb garden in amongst the permaculture vegetable and food forest of the 'Grow Gardens' at Killearn and Drymen, 45 minutes from Glasgow. You will find a self-led herb walk and workshops.
Another garden is also being developed in Aberfoyle at the village hall.
In these gardens you can learn about herbs, and how you can use them for your families health. Plants have many healing facets but our main focuses are on first aid plants (acute medicine), and stress/anxiety relief.
Medicine making workshops
Visitors, locals and tourist will have the chance to visit the garden to take a tour or self-led walk.
There is the opportunity to volunteer at the gardens.
Visitors can make medicines - 1 for themselves and also to help our project Herbalists without Borders Calais*.
Attendees can be involved in the entire medicine making process - harvesting, drying, processing, medicine making, packaging.
We work with vulnerable groups bringing people out to the countryside to learn and connect with plants.
*Herbalists Without Borders Calais run free monthly mobile clinics providing first aid to asylum seekers living rough in Calais.
The project is a Herbalists Without Borders affiliated project which means that we align with their values, and are under the umbrella of Herbalist Without Borders International you can read them HERE.
**This project is currently on pause for visitors due to Covid restrictions**
