A PROJECT to show how tea can be made from almost anything has been started at Hoyland’s only community garden.

Gardeners at Owd Martha’s Yard have started growing different strengths of mint that will be used to make tea, in their attempt to show people that tea can be made from almost anything that grows in a garden, or wild in fields, hedgerows and woodlands.

The garden is running a 12-week course in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society called CommuniTEAS and a cooking demonstration will take place on Wednesday June 26 from 2pm at The Hoyland Centre to show people how herbs can be used.
