We were busy last weekend with our #Herb  workshop at +Roots Shoots and Leaves - fab people :) 
 
Another lovely email from Amanda Pelham, London >>> "Thank you so much for a wonderful, fun and informative day on Saturday. You were so kind and generous in your welcome, your gifts and the sharing of your knowledge – oh, and lunch was delicious too! The whole day was a wonderful ‘switch off’ for me and an inspiration to get going in my garden. Thank you, thank you." So kind :)

This is SO cool! I read the book online - only available with the presentation but still amazing to read and so many interesting facts too :) via +Moon and Space 
 
* We have lift off! Today we launched and released the first 35 moon boot sole presentations!  A numbered, limited edition Apollo moon boot sole made from the exact same compound of silicone rubber used in 1969, and hand cast from a master taken directly from the original mold that was used to create Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s historic boots for NASA. #spaceexploration   #space   #moonboot   #buzzaldrin   #neilarmstrong   #apollomisson   #apollo11   #science   #moonlanding   #astronaut   #onesmallstep   #Apollo    http://moonandspace.com/

Yesterday we had our #Herb Garden Design  workshop - it was so much fun! We designed and sowed seeds in the morning and prepared condiments, health teas and beauty oils in the afternoon. We had a great lunch too and everyone was so lovely.  Herb garden design for health, beauty and cooking +Roots Shoots and Leaves

Today am setting up for tomorrow #Botanicalillustration   workshop with Jarnie at @Sketchbooksquirrel - so excited! We will be foraging around the garden for foliage and flowers to draw and then learn about colour techniques! This is for total beginners, so I am looking forward to taking part a bit - but I have to cook and help out!
