Here he is in action, with photos kindly provided by another Dot Dot Dot guardian Glenn – who volunteered his photography skills for the event. David had the following to say about the event:

“The event was great fun and I was delighted to help Hackney Herbal talk to residents in Dalston about their local efforts to improve community spaces and inspire them to grow herbs at home”.

HaC Tea 5ckney Herbal is a project that aims to connect people and herbs in Hackney. By inspiring and supporting people to grow herbs, it will pool together a collective harvest throughout the year. This herb stock will be used for community workshops, stalls and events centred around the extensive and beneficial uses of herbs. Hackney Herbal will also produce a unique herbal tea blend that will be sold at Tiosk on Broadway Market, with proceeds funding further community herbal work as well as workshops at the Centre for Better Health.
