Update on the Urban Physic Garden

Back in June I posted about the awesome Urban Physic Garden. I've been following along with their events and what they've been up to all summer. The project wraps ups this weekend with plant adoptions.

Being across the pond and all, I couldn't visit in person, but loved checking out the pictures and reading their blog.

I especially enjoyed the Virtual Patient Herb Walk and the post about Medical Edibles.

And I love these illustrations, one of which is pictured above.

This project is so inspiring and has got me thinking about how next year I think I might try and turn some of my allotment gardens into a mini-demonstration physic garden where I could offer herb walks and workshops. And planning for it will be a fun way to spend the cold, dark winter nights!

What a great idea! But I think you should do it in the Ptbo area. ;-)

Thanks Liz! If you ever hear of a nice farm to rent at a reasonable price, close to town, let me know. I'm looking!
