Growth Exhibition

The Wonders of the Botanical World with Kim Walker

Event Details
22 May 2021
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Growth Exhibition

Discover the secret micro-world of the plants growing at Omved Gardens.

Have you ever seen how daisies trick the eye? Seen the hypodermic syringe of a nettle sting? Found the fairy shoes kept inside dead nettles?

Herbalist and Author Kim Walker of Handmade Apothecary will help you connect with the wonder of the botanical world by getting up close and personal with plants. You will be introduced to a bit of beautiful botany, hear folk tales and find out how these plants have been used for food, medicine and materials through the ages.

Kim Walker has been fascinated with flora from a young age, and is now undertaking a PhD in the history of medicinal plants at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and Royal Holloway. She is also a foraging instructor, and author of award winning ‘Just the Tonic’ (Kew publishing, 2019) and bestselling ‘ The Handmade Apothecary’ (Kyle Books, 2017) with Vicky Chown of Omved.
