Forest Farm Peace Garden is very lucky to host Deborah Syrrett, BSc (Hons), MCPP, as our Resident Herbalist. She maintains our herb garden in coordination with other volunteers, and runs practical educational workshops throughout the year.
I am a Western Medical Herbalist and member of The College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy. Herbs have always been the medicine of the people and I believe that every person has the right and should have the knowledge to care for their family’s day-to-day health without the use of powerful pharmaceutical drugs. I feel very privileged that, through my work with the Forest Farm Peace Garden, I am able to help to raise people’s awareness of herbs as a gentle, safe (and free!) source of medicines.
