Learn how to combine herbs to make unique, healthy tea blends in this workshop with Hackney Herbal (@HackneyHerbal).
Nat Mady, Founder and Co-Director of Hackney Herbal will guide you through the properties of medicinal, wild and culinary herbs. With a special focus on winter well-being, we will be exploring herbs that can be incorporated into everyday life as remedies for stress, immunity and sleep.
During the session, you’ll get to have a go at making your own set of herbal teabags to take home.
This workshop is part of our Overwinter programme in partnership with Seedlip.
Back in 2015, Hackney Herbal set out on a mission to show people how to incorporate herbs into their lifestyles, for health and improved wellbeing. The idea came from a desire to create more value out of the herbs that were being grown in private, public and community gardens.
We are now growing herbs in a patchwork of sites around Hackney and from these we create unique herbal tea blends. The funds from the sale of these go towards free community activities in Hackney, which bring people together to learn, share knowledge and be inspired.
We also design and deliver events and workshops which creatively teach and inspire people about the extensive uses of herbs. We are a social enterprise so buying a pack of our tea, attending a workshop or booking us to provide a bespoke event helps to fund our community work promoting good mental health.
