Useful Flowers

Assistant Ranger Nick Robinson and John Worrel led a very interesting day this week. They was teaching a group about the uses of plants in dyeing and medicine, as the last part of a course of six sessions:

First a walk in Rectory Wood, where they looked at wildflowers and fungi.


Then back to Carding Mill Valley, to look at the different uses of the plants they had found.


Everyone found the day very interesting, and are keen to get out there and see which plants they can find and use! Keep an eye out for other events that are run in the valley.
