This Monday come help us clear tiny tree seedlings from the mint and mushroom garden and thin the overgrown wild garlic plants from the fairy orchard. In return for your kind labours, take home a bag of spring herbs! Please bring your own paper or canvas bag.

Today (Saturday), I brought home enough greens from these beautiful gardens to last my family the week. If you want access to hyper-local community centred organic herb gardening, get involved! The River of Herbs foraging gardens are for wildlife and the volunteer gardeners.
Monday mornings, the River of Herbs volunteer gardening group meets at the wild herb orchards behind Huize Frankendael, in Park Frankendael. Would you like to join us? No experience needed, just a love of nature and the desire to allow its expansion in the city.
