About the event

During the day, Fay Jones will reveal why nettles might just be the most useful plant in the UK. Following a 50-minute talk about their ecology and uses, you will have a practical workshop on nettles and make your own cordage, dye samples and nettle pesto. You will also have a chance to sample a range of nettle-based refreshments in the beautiful surroundings of Redgrave & Lopham Fen.
