When? April (date TBC), 6.30-8.30pm
Where? Fitzroy Park Allotments, Highgate
What to expect?
Meeting on Hampstead Heath we will learn about a couple of seasonal plants and collect them to make tea with. We will make our own edible glycerine infused plant-based product with our discoveries. We will have a tour of Fitzroy Park allotment with Mick Rand (allotment king) and even plant some seeds before learning some basic pre industrial wood-working techniques.
