We are collecting information on alternative uses of plants amongst our members and supporters. Perhaps there is a plant you or your family have always used that you would like to tell us about. It may be a leaf that stops your skin itching, a root that makes a good dye or even a stem that can be made into twine.
We've already been researching what can be done with some of the plants growing at Ryton Organic Gardens. Without even growing anything new, we have found many plants in place which have a multitude of alternative uses.
