In a relaxed and friendly session taking place via zoom you are invited to join herbalist Maria Billington who will be sharing a variety of ideas for using herbs.

Maria will be taking a look at the rich bounties of Summer – exploring some of the wonderful plants that are abundant at this time of year.
