‘Feel Green’ project – Learning about herbs

As part of the ‘Feel Green’ project participants from Mosaic in June enjoyed a day visit at the University of Leicester Botanic Garden doing activities on the topic of ‘Herbs’. In the morning groups looked at the herb garden in the Botanic Garden and discussed uses of herbs both culinary and medicinal. Then the participants cut up leaves to make a bag of mixed herbs to take home. Some of the herbs will be used to make a soup for our celebration event. In the afternoon the participants created hand creams with the help of a herbalist.
