Herbs & Food for Wellbeing with Daphne Lambert & Julia Behrens

Here I share my expert knowledge of the medicinal properties of certain trees. Whilst walking in woodland, I explain how I draw on both traditional medical beliefs and modern scientific research to help heal patients using specific parts of trees such as lime flowers, oak bark and hawthorn berries. I also talk about how plant utilisation and conservation need to co-exist.

Herbs for health

Join Herbalist Julia Behrens for a tour of her wild herb garden and living medicine cabinet. Julia explains the medicinal properties of many everyday plants and herbs such as sage, nettle, ground ivy, dandelions and rosemary and shows how to use herbs to cure illness and promote good-health.
