About the event
Create Conscious Community presents Healing Herbalism. As part of our Mindful Permaculture theme, we’ve started Renegade Urban Growers project which we’ve co-created with members of the community to provide online and physical resources that empowers people to grow their own organic medicinal herbs and food sustainably and ethically, whilst equipping them with knowledge about the historical, cultural, spiritual and medicinal aspects of plants. We’re teaming up with teachers, facilitators and organisations to bring this information and access to amazing spaces to grow, to you. So follow us as we enter the world of mindful permaculture with Mobile Apothecary(MA) and Rebecca Lazerou (RL) who will teach us about identifying and foraging, making medicines from plants and their effect in the body. Our Healing Herbalism series starts with a medicinal vinegar, for anyone looking to boost their immune systems with natural plant powerhouses. Springtime has an abundance of nutritious plants perfect for making vinegars you can sip straight up or add to a salad as a dressing(Yum!). The event features tutorials and presentations by MA and RL about medicinal properties of the vinegars and how to forage and make them. As well as a chance to ask questions and learn about the opportunities in the spaces available. Learn alongside or check out the tutorials on our Website/Youtube at your leisure. Our Teachers: Rebecca Lazerou
About me I am a medicinal plant scientist, holistic therapist and teacher driven by all things healing. I am currently researching at Kew Gardens and have set up my company Laz The Plant Scientist which is an educational hub for herbal medicines, science and holistic healing. I will also soon be offering high quality botanical medicines to support your wellbeing. Afterall, I believe a step towards nature is a step towards balance.

The Mobile Apothecary is a growing network of volunteers spanning the areas of herbalism, horticulture and the arts. Since April 2019, we have been bringing people together to collectively learn about medicinal plants and create herbal medicine for distribution to fellow community members facing barriers to health, food, and shelter.
The Mobile Apothecary supports communities in the locality with good-quality, homegrown and communally-made herbal remedies.
The Mobile Apothecary project facilitates
- Habitat & local urban environment connection.
- Collective ethical & sustainable growing, stewarding, and harvesting of plants.
- The making of medicines for some of the most vulnerable people within the community, with local resources and local hands.
Collectively making herbal medicine strengthens bonds between people and local ecosystems.
