For January's Herb Group Gathering we'll be having a herbal film night with a screening of the documentary Juliette of the Herbs produced by filmmaker Tish Streeton. We will gather from 6.30 and the screening will begin at 7pm.
Here is more info about the film and you can also watch the trailer here.
A beautiful lyrical portrait of the life and work of Juliette de Bairacli Levy: herbalist, author, breeder of Afghan hounds, friend of the Gypsies, traveler in search of herbal wisdom and the pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine. Her well-loved and now classic herbal remedies for animals and for children have been a vital inspiration to the present day herbal renaissance and holistic animal care community.
For more than 60 years Juliette lived with the Gypsies, nomads and peasants of the world, learning the healing arts of these people who live close to nature, and learning from nature herself. Juliette's life story is as colorful and exciting as her tremendous wealth of herbal knowledge.
