Forest and Folk is Open! Come party with us!
We really hope to see you this Friday 26th August for our opening party! Drop in any time from 6pm for a glass of punch and a tour of the new medicine garden, browse the studio shop and see our workshop. We're located at the fabulous Milton Keynes Arts Centre in Great Linford, just off the V8 (see here for directions).
We'll be launching our Autumn membership shares during the evening too.
Each season we will have a number of membership shares available - this Autumn there will be just 20 exclusive shares up for grabs. Shares will cost £60 and you’ll be able to collect your products at our Winter celebration in December, just in time for Christmas. Share members will also receive 5% off at the till on all shop products!
We will have an example share available to see in the shop on the night, but here's what you are likely to get in the December share:
Fire Cider - a naturally antibiotic brew, drink neat or use in salads and soups
Winter warming tea - a general tonic tea, reminiscent of summer with a hint of spice
Great Green Healers balm - containing comfrey from the garden here
Elderberry cough syrup - containing rose and hyssop from the garden here
Meadowsweet muscle and joint rub - our popular remedy for aches and pains
Your support, in buying a share upfront, will help keep us open, enable us to develop the medicine garden, buy quality ingredients and give us time to nurture, gather, and prepare healing medicine for you.
In the future, the majority of the plants we use will be grown in the garden. Where we can’t grow something or it doesn’t make sense to, we always use sustainable wild gathering practices. We go to great lengths to use organic, fair trade, packaging free, and small scale produced ingredients in Forest and Folk products. We want to help create sustainable supply chains and give you a really special product!
Don't worry if you'd like to sign up for a share but can't make the opening, we will be open from 1st September, Monday to Saturday so please pop in and we'll be happy to sign you up. We will also make shares available to sign up for through our online shop from Saturday 27th August, these will cost £65 to cover merchant fees. Signs ups will end on 1st October.
Thank you in advance for supporting us! If you have any questions about membership shares, or anything else - please email us. We look forward to welcoming you to the Forest and Folk community!
