Rosie Ashton is a self taught community herbalist who has been working with plants for several years in community gardens across the UK.
Rosie has a background in permaculture and is an experienced food grower and plant-based chef. She has been creating community gardens and facilitating herbalism, food growing and wellbeing sessions since 2016.
With a passion for plants, she spends her free time deepening her herbal knowledge foraging, and in her allotment where she grows an ever growing collection of medicinal herbs.
Rosie will part of our day at Birkenhead Park in May.
"During this session, Rosie from Urban Herbal will introduce springtime herbs and guide you through tea tasting and how to make a herbal oxymel, plus oxymel tasters and loads of opportunities for questions and discussions about getting started with home herbalism. The oxymel will be made using sustainably sourced honey from the Make Hamilton community garden in Birkenhead and all the herbs used during the class have been locally grown or foraged."
