Written by James Langton

Hackney Herbal is a social enterprise specialising in creative events which explore the beneficial uses of herbs. We run a variety of herb-related activities in Hackney promoting mental health and wellbeing within the local community.

Back in 2015, we set out on a mission to show people how to incorporate herbs into their lifestyles, for health and improved wellbeing. The idea came from a desire to create more value out of the herbs that were being grown in private, public and community gardens.

We are now growing herbs in a patchwork of sites around Hackney and from these we create unique herbal tea blends. The funds from the sale of these go towards free community activities in Hackney, which bring people together to learn, share knowledge and be inspired.

We also design and deliver events and workshops which creatively teach and inspire people about the extensive uses of herbs. We are a social enterprise so buying a pack of our tea, attending a workshop or booking us to provide a bespoke event helps to fund our community work promoting good mental health. You can read more about our social impact here.

If you would like to get involved or have an idea for collaborating with us we would love to hear from you!
