About the event

Join me for a herb walk in the Abbey gardens and a sensory tasting session to introduce you to some herbs.



(Book Part I & II together £80)  

The nuns were deeply connected to their plants and their gardens were an essential part of their everyday life. They grew their own herbs for healing, for food, for sacred ceremony, and all sorts of other purposes!

Focusing on the rhythm of monastic garden life, let’s find out about the plants the nuns grew. How did they used them for healing and strengthening body, mind, spirit?   How can you use herbs for everyday health today?

Includes herbal refreshment and a herb tea to take home.
