Herbal Botany Day

Last November it was a great pleasure to have the Herbal medicine students from Om Shanti College rambling through the garden. Having been used to my own workshops in the garden it was good to hear people interacting with the herbs while I was working on other things. The garden loves company and people interacting with it.

Steve Allen their trainer, showed them the wonder of herbs and botany. The students braved a monsoonal downpour which pulped all written material exposed to it in seconds.

The student’s sense of humour was sorely tested as their assessment sheets became smudged ink and illegible.  Later on in the evening a party returned to the farm as a ford in the road was too deep for them to cross. We sat around in the lounge and talked while sipping on some home-made chai – great memories.

Have a look at the faces of these people. They are the next generation of herbalists.

Looking forward to having the class out again this year 2015.
