Herbalism and natural remedy walk with Rasheeqa Ahmad

22 Apr 2023 11am-1pm


Homing in on the plants that we encounter in our local landscape of east London, join medical herbalist Rasheeqa Ahmad for a ramble as we walk and talk about what the histories and ecologies of plants might mean for collective healing and liberation. 

Using the plants and herbs we meet along the way, we will make a communal foraged tea to sit and taste together, connecting ourselves with the local landscape and acknowledging the presence and power of these plants that have always played a crucial role in communities’ practices of care and health. 

There will be opportunities for attendees to free-write, draw, or reflect on their impressions from the walk and the meditative tea tasting. 

All materials provided! However, if you wish to consciously forage and reciprocally receive things from the land along your way, then feel free to bring a jar or a cloth bag etc. with you, and a small offering to leave in exchange. 

The walk will take place along a section of the canal towpath in east London. The exact meeting point on the day will be emailed out to all attendees a few weeks before the walk.
