Herb Talk with Sarah Jane Scouten

Sunday 20 November, 12-2pm

We will be based at CAMPLE LINE. The session will include conversation, tea-making and refreshments, and, weather permitting, it may include accessing plants in our greenspace.

£3 (booking required)

Sarah Jane Scouten will lead a relaxing and informative herb talk at CAMPLE LINE at 12pm, which will draw upon her passion for Scottish herbs and Scottish music, and celebrate the arrival of summer. 
Bringing together folk song, wild plant identification and foraging and the ways they intersect, Sarah Jane will lead a conversation exploring the common edible and medicinal plants that are found in our local hedgerows. She will talk about their therapeutic properties as well as about traditional folk songs that refer to them.
We will try our hand at making some simple teas, and weather permitting we may walk around the greenspace at CAMPLE LINE.
Four-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, Sarah Jane Scouten’s music delivers a signature mix of vintage folk and country music, with modern sounds and subjects. An ever expanding palette brings a freshness to her brand of ambient indie Americana — or ‘space-country’ as she likes to call it.
Daughter of a Glaswegian emigrant to Canada, Sarah Jane has called Dumfries and Galloway home since 2019. During the pandemic, with live music brought to a halt, Sarah Jane began training to be a herbalist at Betonica School of Herbal Medicine.
