Exeter Seed Bank is holding a workshop exploring the history, folklore and medicinal qualities of common local herbs and plants on Sunday 2 October at Exeter Phoenix.
Medical herbalist Ile Ashcroft will lead the workshop, which will include making up and tasting herbal teas.
Participants will be given advice about which plants to grow in small medicinal gardens to make up their own infusions and informed about which plants to avoid.
Exeter Seed Bank aims to share knowledge about seed saving, an ancient craft that is being revived in the face of diminishing seed diversity.
It is creating a seed bank that works in local soils and takes into account other issues such as biodiversity loss and climate change.
It aims to hold organic, heirloom or heritage flower and vegetable seeds, with wildflower mixes to increase the presence of pollinators.
It also programmes events that follow the seed calendar and creatively engage people with the natural world while encouraging environmental stewardship.
Its herbal history, folklore and medicine workshop runs from 2-4pm on Sunday 2 October at Exeter Phoenix.
Tickets cost £10 and are available via the Exeter Phoenix website.
