Friday 29th to Sunday 31st August 2014 and

begin with by the Sunday it seems to have

The festival provided talks, walks,
demonstrations and workshops, as well as
lots of opportunity for personal
explorations of herbs. There were also
other activities going on throughout the
weekend, including lunchtime musical
interludes and evening impromptu musical
