Amanda was brought up storytelling; coming from a family of plant-loving writers and artists, she first learnt about plants from her gran who remembered traditional recipes and folklore. After studying law and then herbal medicine, Amanda started combining stories and plants, connecting them to place, creating new work in a way designed to get people thinking, finding connections. Amanda has created work for Botanic Gardens, museums, schools and universities internationally since 2010 www.botanicafabula.co.uk www.facebook.com/AmandaEdmistonBotanicaFabulaHerbalStorytelling @HerbalStorytell
