“England has such a rich history and tradition for utilising herbs for almost everything whether it be medicine, health, aroma, taste, relaxation, beauty or pleasure. We are surrounded by such beautiful and majestic plants and fungi even in our urban environments, The Herball has been created to celebrate this nature enabling us to re-connect with our surroundings and ourselves. I want people to take great pleasure in harnessing and enjoying the plants and fungi not only for their healing qualities but their taste, aroma, appearance and energy, we are blessed to have a relationship with such dynamic nature, lets embrace this and enjoy it”.
