Just popping in in-between unpacking boxes and moving furniture. Many of you know about the Mercian Herb Group from this forum, the HS website and Herbs magazine, but what you may not know is it's recently split in to two branches, Sarah Head has taken over the West Midlands branch and she'll give you further details if you ask her.
In March 2011 I'm opening up a East Midlands branch which will be based in the Derby area, not sure where yet, it all depends where the greatest concentration of people are coming from. You can find out more on my bloghttp://herbal-haven.co.uk/blog/2010/09/new-derby-based-herb-group-coming-in-2011/
and on the MHG website http://www.mercianherbgroup.co.uk/
If you're interested in attending the new Derby based herb group, get in touch with me via the email link above. The group will meet once a month and we'll have a variety of herbal talks and demonstrations, make trips to herb gardens and venues and generally enjoy learning about the delights of herbs and pooling our collective herbal knowledge.
Knowing where people are based will help when choosing a location for the new group, so if you're interested please get in touch. If you're a herbalist based in the Derby area who fancies coming along to bring your herbal knowledge and wisdom with you, offer talks or you have another specialist herbal area that you can share with our group please do get in touch.
