Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER: Event in Whitstable, 9 August

Posted on by royvickery |

On Tuesday 9 August Roy Vickery will be contributing a walk Tales of Flora: Folklore of Wild Plants to the Whitstable, Kent,  Wild About Whitstable Week, for further information see the Events page on this website.

Report: About 20 people apparently enjoyed wandering around Whitstable Castle Garden discussing the uses and folklore of some of the wild plants found there.  Drought conditions led to many of the plants being in poor condition, but we were mostly able to stay in the shady parts of the Garden and examine what was growing there.  The event was enlivened by contributions from several of the participants who were either practising herbalists or active foragers.

‘Everyone enjoyed it.’
