Founded in 2015, Hackney Herbal is a social enterprise which designs and delivers workshops to expose alternative uses for herbs. Its aim is to promote health and wellbeing in the local community. Regular workshops vary from exploring ‘herbal wellbeing’, to tea blending methods, or creating natural cosmetics. The organisation also grows its own herbs to make unique tea blends which are available to buy. As a non-profit organisation these profits are used to hold community activities in Hackney.
