  • GZEROMedia found that, across the globe, the number of refugees has climbed to the highest level seen in nearly 70 years. War, persecution and climate change have prompted some 70.8 million to flee their homes, more than twice as many as two decades ago. Ongoing conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, South Sudan and Somalia account for roughly two thirds of all refugees, while Syria accounts for the most with a staggering 6.7 million. The UN refugee agency estimates 37,000 people are displaced every day.

On Herbs

Jekka

 

Growing herbs, seeing them, smelling them, touching them, eating them and I hope, soon sharing them (as plants and incorporated into recipes and remedies), makes me - as it does millions of others, i'm sure - just feel better.

Jekka McVicar is an inspiration - she now grows around 700 different herbs.  We can even use herbs to grow our own first-aid kits

I have now been privileged enough to spend a day in the company of the wonderful Jekka and her family. Jekka, with no fewer than 14 Chelsea Golds, probably knows as much about herbs as anyone in England.
