The Witches Garden: A talk by the Seed SistAs (Online)
Thursday, 10th November 2022, 19:00 - 20:00Donation
Welcome herb lovers!
Fi and Kazz are the charismatic Seed SistAs, two herbalists that met at university and together committed to sharing their passion for plants, wellbeing and reconnecting with the land, the elements and the seasons.
Over decades of study and clinical practice in herbal medicine, they have developed their own wacky style and a structure of herbalism which encompasses many diverse art forms, carefully listening to and being guided by the voices of the hedgerow.
Their new book ‘Poison Prescriptions – Power Plant Medicine, Magic and Ritual’ is a gloriously illustrated guide to the most witchy of all the herbs, the nightshade – notorious gypsies of the wayside – henbane, datura and belladonna; plants that hold the keys to an altered mind perspective, as well as being important physically-active medicine. Since ancient times, these incredible plants have been famed for applications in witchcraft and medicine.
Come take a stroll in our (virtual) garden and meet some of our favourite herbs. We want to share with you our deep love and astonishing relationship with these oft maligned creatures. Let us take you on a trip around the globe exploring some of the history, folklore, magic and medicine of these potent plants. With extra special attention to the Femme Fatale herself – that beautiful lady – Belladonna.
