Grass Roots Remedies applied for £7,500 to match fund a larger partnership focused project that takes a holistic and natural approach to health and well-being. As well as foraging for seasonal wild herbs, the project is working with the community gardens and local gardeners to grow the herbs and plants required. People taking part with learn how to use the plants safely and with confidence.
