Grass roots remedies


We are an Edinburgh based workers’ cooperative whose central philosophy is that herbal medicine is the medicine of the people and should be accessible to everyone. We offer a series of practical courses and workshops, run the low cost Wester Hailes Community Herbal Medicine Clinic and the Blackford Glen Medicine Garden, and produce simple resources to enable folks to practice herbalism at home.


Our co-op members have different backgrounds, but all share a commonality in their love of plants, and their involvement in grassroots environmental & health projects. Born out of this, our business values are based broadly on the three Permaculture Ethics of “Earth Care, People Care, & Fair Share”
