The Herb Garden and Growing Herbs

A Herb Garden for You – Ever fancied growing your own herbs and tailored medicinal plants? We can create a herb garden with plants specifically chosen to suit your environment and health needs. We have gardeners and herbal knowledge to suit any sized garden. Contact us for more information. It is said that herbs growing around you are the ones you most likely need. I often see lungwort in the gardens of folk with lung issues and rogue marigold in the gardens of those in need of her excellent healing strength. I also know that cultivating wild medicine is a fantastic and ethical move as it prevents the damage that unethical foraging can wreak.

Stroud Community Medicine Garden – we set up the first Stroud Community Medicine Garden to get locals together to learn about herbal medicine while enjoying the therapeutics of gardening and socialising. As each person gifts their time to the garden, so it grows and they can reap the rewards from the medicine beds and knowledge from the herbalists. We would also like to start up other gardens where we can have more medicine making beds full of glorious herbs! Get in touch if you have land you’d like to donate/loan/make use of!

Cosmos Medicine Garden – this is my own herb garden at home. It keeps changing. I use it to study herbs, to understand them better as plants, to harvest medicines, to get my hands dirty….  It’s a project that also welcomes participants at certain times of year (notably summer). Give us a call or drop an email through if you’d like to learn about herbs whilst toiling away in the herb garden!

Nana’s Medicine Garden – this is another herb garden in which we grow medicinal plants – we had lots of different species and picked a little from a great variety, now we are planting less varieties and harvesting more of that particular medicine.
