Forest and Folk Botanicals



Based at Milton Keynes Arts Centre in the gorgeous surrounds of the Georgian Manor House, Forest and Folk aims to support health and wellbeing by helping people reconnect to locally grown, medicinal plants.

Each quarter, members receive a subscription box full of herbal remedies and natural health products. This share in the harvest helps us plan ahead, grow some really special medicinal plants and invest in making luxurious products that you will enjoy. Think of it like a veg box scheme but for your medicine cabinet and bathroom shelves! Members also receive discounts on workshops at our studio and invitations to special events.

 

You are warmly invited to....


Grand Opening Evening - Friday 26th August, drop in anytime from 6pm

We'd love our supporters and family and friends to come and see what we've been up to and what we are planning! Feel free to drop in anytime after 6pm.

Enjoy botanically themed refreshments and relax in the garden with like minded folk. Browse the studio shop and find out more about community supported herbalism and our forthcoming launch of shares in the harvest. RSVP please.
