September 26-27 Herb Society AGM and Conference 2009 in Stratford-upon-Avon
Our speakers on Saturday 26th will be James Wong, ethnobotanist and presenter of the BBC's Grow Your Own Drugs, and Anna Parkinson, BBC journalist and author of Nature's Alchemist: John Parkinson, Herbalist to Charles I, a book about her ancestor who was born two years earlier than Stratford's most famous son, William Shakespeare. James and Anna will focus on herbs Shakespeare would have known, from their different perspectives.
