After an informative walk around the hedgerows at Tuppenny Barn exploring superstitions and folklore, Christine from The Hedgerow Apothecary will demonstrate how to make Elderberry Rob, a soothing cordial for sore throats and chesty coughs, and Bramble vinegar traditionally used as a gargle to ease prickly throats. You will have a bottle of each remedy to take home. £39pp includes homemade refreshments.
Christine’s latest book “The Hedgerow Apothecary: Recipes, Remedies and Rituals” will be published by Summersdale in October 2019. With photographs to help you safely identify edible plants, advice on what is available each season and how best to prepare and preserve your finds, this is the essential guide to enjoying the bountiful delights of the hedgerows.
