Nettles are abundant in urban areas and are a great natural resource. Humans and nettles have a very symbiotic existence. High levels of nitrogen and phosphate in the soil from human waste provide the perfect environment for nettles to thrive in. They are really nutritious and have been used by humans for food, medicine and fibre as well as having many uses for the gardener.
I started Nettle Fest to create a happy, fun and healthy community event and somewhere I can share my love of the Nettle.
