Julia Behrens, who has done some excellent talks on hebal plants for us, has provided a link to a short film about the history of herbal medicine (as shown at Seedy Sunday). 

She also has a puppet show in the Brighton Fringe

Exquisite puppets and fascinating facts about herbs make the Nettle Knickers Puppet Show a real delight. The story of Marigold’s quest to find the herbal cure for her brothers, who have been turned into swans by the evil (and poisonous) Belladonna, keeps  old and younger members of the audience engaged. Important facts about the use of herbs in medicine, cooking and dyeing and the dangers of poisonous plants and berries are woven into the storytelling so that audience members leave with an increased knowledge of our natural heritage.
