Discover Southwark Cathedral's Herb Garden
Sat, June 10, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM BST
In 2015 when the Cathedral re-designed its Herb Garden, Juliana Wakefield, who specialises in historic herbalism at the Old Operating Theatre & Herb Garret, jumped at the opportunity to become involved. She provided information on the design of monastic gardens, on which the present garden is based, and on the plants that were cultivated by medieval monks.
Join Juliana as she shows you herbs that were used not just in cookery and physic but also for strewing, fumigating, dying and brewing. You will also be shown a demonstration of simple plant remedies.
