Important Note: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Due to the coronavirus (Covid 19) we have taken the incredibly difficult decision to close the G. Baldwin & Co stores and stop taking online orders for the foreseeable future. Please check back to the website or our social media channels for updates.

We’re sorry for any inconvenience and are working to despatch or refund any orders already placed.

Rasheeqa Ahmad Community Herbalist

Rasheeqa Ahmad is a qualified medical herbalist based in Walthamstow, east London.

She trained at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine in Glasgow and at Middlesex University (Archway Herbal Clinic) in London, gaining a 1st-class Honours degree and the Ellis Snitcher Memorial Prize for Integrative Medicine in 2012.

She trained in Herbal Medicine with the aim of helping people (including herself!) to enjoy positivity and intelligent health in collaboration with our living universe. She's excited by the possibilities of plant medicines, both those understood since ancient times and those emerging now. She is committed to continuing to learn more about this power and to sharing it with with others as best she can. She believes that understanding our connections and symbiosis with the other living beings of the earth can yield great potential for our future development and success – all of us together.

Her practice encompasses consultations and treatment, plant-gathering and medicine-making, community activity including knowledge-sharing, practical workshops and herb walks, and vital connections with people and organisations working in peace and productivity with the earth and universe.

She continues to develop her skills and knowledge through attendance of CPD (continuous professional development) courses & events and involvement with my local community and initiatives including the Low Cost Living Project and Waltham Forest LETS.
