For our last Nature Study group outing for the first term, we spent a day at Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre .?

We spent the morning with Sandy Roberts, who talked about herbs and led us in a workshop on making herbal salt. ?

This is an amazing place for learning about herbs, exploring the various gardens, enjoying the tea garden, restaurant and shop. ?

My favorite herb was STEVIA, the sweetest herb in the world, 300 times sweeter than cane sugar.?

Second was SOAPWORT, a plant full of saponins, the leaves make a soft, soothing lather for washing for dirty hands and even for bathing dogs. ❤Thanks to @SANDY ROBERTS ??
