greyfriars garden

Post by ravanwin » Mon Nov 10, 2008 12:36 pm

I am writing to let you know about a new initiative in the grounds of Greyfriars Kirk that might be of interest to you.

In the Middle Ages, Greyfriars Kirkyard was used as a medicinal herb garden with an on-site apothecary producing herbal remedies for the poor. An exciting new venture is now underway to transform portions of the yard into a herb garden once again. You may have an interest in gardening, the production of medicinal herbs or simply a general interest in this scheme so I have attached the flyer advertising our request for volunteers for your information.

If you are interested in helping in any way then please contact the Minister of Greyfriars, Richard Frazer at the email address on the attached flyer or simply come along to Greyfriars Kirkyard any Thursday between 10am and 12pm.
