Herbologies Expedition to Kurzeme, Latvia
These midsummer days an interdisciplinary and international group gathers in Kurzeme, Latvia, for the second part of Herbologies/Foraging Networks programme this year.

Interdisciplinary Art Group SERDE coordinates, hosts and builds upon their experience of engaging cultural heritage subjects as an arts organisation, based in Aizpute town, Kurzeme. Signe Pucena, in collaboration with Andrew Gryf Paterson, has organised a series of fieldwork excursions to learn about the contemporary practices and cultural heritage related to the use of wild plants.

The main topics for the herbologies expedition will be how to recognise, gather and use wild plants and flowers for: teas, infusions, tinctures, sauna besoms, herbs in home-made cosmetics, midsummer crowns from wild flowers, and as a ‘pharmacy’ of room plants on the window-sill.
