After a year of Zoom remote workshops, this weekend SLOWsibs returned with a face-to-face session called ‘Herbs for Hearts’, held outside at the beautiful Ecology Centre in Islington.
It was lovely to see all our amazing sibs painting their pots and planting herbs and flowers in memory of their brothers, sisters, parents and grandparents. Basil for love, rosemary for remembrance, mint for hospitality / wisdom and petunias to remember our loved ones. Looking up petunia, it has a lively symbolism over the centuries – love, trust, hope, comfort and fury – pretty much sums up what we can feel in grief!
A huge thank you to our wonderful, hardworking volunteers – Laura, Mandi and Hamish.
Our next workshop will take place in the Autumn and workshops are designed for bereaved siblings aged 6 to 15 years of age. For more information about SLOWsibs click here.
