Weleda is an international company which produces organic cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, with a UK base in Ilkeston. Since it was established in 1923, Weleda has followed its aims to work in harmony with nature. Their products aim to support human beings in maintaining, promoting and restoring their health and in achieving physical well-being and a balanced lifestyle.
We’ll be meeting gardener Claire Hattersley who’ll show us round the 15 acre, biodynamic site known as The Field. Plants and flowers grown here provide the raw materials for their organic cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The gardeners use biodynamic systems and we’ll be visiting at a lovely time of year when so many plants will be in flower.
The address is The Field, Shipley (2 miles north of Ilkeston). 'The Field' lane is just about opposite the Shipley Garden Centre. Weleda's land is down the first track left after the bungalow.
We will meet at 7.15 pm for a 7.30 start – we’ll be there for about 2 hours. If you need a lift or can offer a space in your car, let me know by email to [masked] or phone - 0115 8598340. Please let me know if you intend to come as I need to let Claire know how many people to expect.
