I work at Phytology as an on-site medical herbalist. Phytology is an artist- and community-led project exploring the use, value, resilience, and function of wildness within urban ecosystems. Located within the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve, Phytology is part physic garden; part cultural institute; part urban wilderness; and a platform for collaboration between artists, scientists, and a wide variety of community groups.
Currently we harvest, manufacture and sell our herbal body balms.
Phytology is an artist-run social enterprise, with all profits reinvested into the ongoing care of the medicinal garden as a community asset.
Come and visit us in London during from May-September, when we are open to the public.
