If yes, you’ll need to get your skates on because booking of the event where you can meet James Wong closes tomorrow – 12th September.
The Herb Society’s AGM and Conference is being held on 26th to 27th September in Stratford-upon-Avon. The speakers will be James Wong, ethnobotanist and presenter of the BBC’s Grow Your Own Drugs, and Anna Parkinson, BBC journalist and author of Nature’s Alchemist: John Parkinson, Herbalist to Charles I, a book about her ancestor who was born two years earlier than Stratford’s most famous son, William Shakespeare. James and Anna will focus on herbs Shakespeare would have known, from their different perspectives. On Sunday 27th there will be a special visit to Hall’s Croft, home of Shakespeare’s daughter Susanna and son-in-law John Hall, which will be led by Sue Minter.
