With everyone stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak, local herb expert Nat Mady has produced a handy video on how to sow your own lettuce and parsley seeds.


Mady is the founder of Hackney Herbal, a social enterprise which promotes health and wellbeing through herbs.

The organisation has sadly been forced to postpone events and workshops due to the coronavirus crisis, but if you’d like to support Nat and the team, you can buy herbal tea blends at a reduced price.

All money generated from the sale of the blends will help to keep Hackney Herbal’s free community support going over the coming weeks.

And if you’re in need of seeds, check out the Citizen Gardener’s free giveaway box at Hackney City Farm – more here.
