We've just published the summer edition of The Directory, which Lambeth Council has kindly funded. We're busy distributing 10,000 copies across the borough. To find a copy, check out your local library, GP surgery, food bank, children's centre, advice centre, job centre, etc.
If you miss this issue, you can download a copy from our homepage.
We also have a page showing Lambeth's food bank opening times in the August issue of Brixton Bugle newspaper.
A massive thanks to Ajuub (our distribution team) - superstar!
We love working with others. We're excited to share our new directory, which we've published in partnership with Brixton Advice Centre and funding from Big Lottery.
The mega-talented Fan Sissoko created our beautiful new branding.
We’ve distributed 5000 copies across the borough, with help from our brilliant volunteer Ebony.
Over Christmas, we published our first emergency food timetable in the Brixton Bugle newspaper, which reaches over 12,000 people. A donation from Norwood & Brixton Food Bank made this possible. This is so cool.
A massive thank you to Radical Herbalism Collective for their gathering in London recently. My mind has been well and truly expanded!
It was an excellent day, with talks that really chimed with my thinking about who has access to herbalism in our urban communities, but also made me think about herbalism in new ways. I met some brilliant people.
Herbalists Without Borders (UK), offer free herbal care to vulnerable people, including refugees and homeless people. They are always looking for people to get involved their work (herb growing, donations, volunteering, etc), so get in contact.
We made a tea and tincture with Herbalista who operate in the USA and Ireland. The medicines created were given to Hackney Migrant Centre.
Also, insightful discussions on the politics of herbalism in relation to issues such as class, race, gender and globalization. (Plus free cake!) I'm still absorbing all the information and generosity.
There will be more gatherings this year in Manchester and Bristol, I would totally recommend going.
