The Plant Based Podcast

Oct 20, 2019

Among chirping bird song, nestled in Highgate Woods in North London, the Plant Based Podcast meets Kim and Vicky from Handmade Apothecary to learn about foraging, and how to use plants to create healing remedies and recipes.

Kim and Vicky met at university when they were studying herbal medicine, and can now regularly be found out foraging for herbs. They use their medicinal backgrounds to carry out examinations and to share herbal medicine with local communities.

Join them in this episode of the Plant Based Podcast to learn how to forage, what to pick (and what not to pick!), and then what to do (and when) to ensure that your hoard is safe for using as natural remedies.


Visit to discover five herbs you can find in your neighbourhood and how they can be used for health.
