ONLINE: Herbal Wellbeing with Rasheeqa Ahmad

Fri 18th June 2021 Online

Join community herbalist Rasheeqa Ahmad of Hedge Herbs, based in London, for a knowledge-sharing and practical plant medicine workshop.

We will hear about the practice of herbal medicine in our healthcare ecologies today, its role in systems change that connects us with land and the wild, our ancestral beings and the current social justice movement.

Rasheeqa will offer an overview of simple herbal preparations that you can make at home, and go through the process of making one with you using plants of the season. We’ll share information beforehand so that you can gather the plants you may need in advance, allowing us to make the medicine together during the session.

This event is hosted by Eastside Projects as part of Extra Special People. Places are limited, and only open to members of the Kaleidoscope Network (including all NewBridge Members). To book a place email

The Kaleidoscope Network

This event is programmed as part of The Kaleidoscope Network – a collaboration between Eastside Projects (Birmingham), Primary (Nottingham), Spike Island (Bristol) and The NewBridge Project (Newcastle). Formed in response to a need for mutual support, the network has come together as a way to share resources, increase what each partner is able to offer and create new connections between communities of artists. It also offers professional development for the associated partners learning from one another. 



This event is accessed remotely online.
