The Herbal Health Bar project of 2015 consisted of us:
- Transforming the small green house in the garden into an info point, sensory and visual installation all relating around plants, herbs, and herbal medicine.

|Herbal Health Bar|
- Organising a Launch Weekend full of workshops and activities, on Saturday 30th May and Sunday 31st May 2015.
|Launch Weekend schedule|
- Running free Thursday evening drop-in sessions from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, where we would do experiential learning and skill and knowledge sharing together in the form of
Herb Walks in the garden and 'Make Your Own Herbarium'
|Making a hot infused oil|
- Running affordable in-depth Sunday workshops looking at certain ailments and herbs in more depth. The workshops also had a strong practical focus, and thus were a lot of fun where each participant would take home one or two herbal goodies which they have made. We did 4 workshops over the summer, each lasting from 12-5pm, with the following themes:
Seasonal Immune Support
|Stress in the City workshop with Sarah and Steph|

At the moment we are working on how to take this project further and maybe transform it into a mobile venture, that we can take to different places.
All in all it was a fabulous project and we learned a lot (and hope you too!).
We would like to thank you so much for your enthusiasm and participation and the Dalston Eastern Curve for giving us the opportunity tho do this.
