About the event
The overlooked weeds that peep through the cracks, the unnoticed wildflowers that populate the verges – little do we realise the value they hold for us humans and for other living things. Spend 3 hours of discovery in the Langdon garden: smelling, feeling, naming, tasting and creating with wonderful wildflowers and weeds.
The workshop is from 10am – 1pm, with a short tea break mid-way. Afterwards, from 1.00-2.00pm, you are invited to stay on for lunch by the pond for more weeds and wildflower chat with Mandy and your fellow particiants.
LUNCH - Bring your own, or add on a Wasted Kitchen salad buffet* for £8.50.
*Vegetarian. Please contact us for vegan/GF etc options.
