"I started walking to Santiago de Compostela, not the whole way, but enough to give me a taste for further walks. I was amazed I could do this physically, and I became fascinated by the history of pilgrimage, the increasing unfolding of the huge amounts of pilgrimage paths, and I also became very interested in why there are an increasing number of people taking part in these walks and what are they all walking for. On top of all this I am positive that there is a spiritual element to walking these historic paths that I am still trying to understand for myself.
This has happened over a period of about six years, during which time I have walked many routes including those in Spain, England, Switzerland and Ireland. In 2014 I walked from London to Rome on the Via Francigena, and last year I walked from Rome to Jerusalem.
Initially I was walking for myself and my own desire to reintegrate myself in to a fuller life. Increasingly, I felt I wanted to get more out of my walking, and I gradually introduced the idea of walking for a charity. I chose the Alzheimers Society, because of the voluntary work I am involved with here in Cornwall. I sensed the value of this, particularly as I was broadcasting this with an Alzheimers Society logo emblazoned on my chest rucksack that I wore. This last walk to Jerusalem, I chose to walk for Peace, having been inspired by other Peace Walkers, and the experience of having walked through the cemeteries of the Somme for a full three weeks on my walk to Rome."

Through her work with medicinal plants, Belle Benfield’s art practice asks of humans how our relationship with our health and our environment might improve when we bring plants to the foreground of our consciousness.
Currently 71% of our seed supply is controlled by seven companies which if Monsanto and Beyer merge could become six. Seeds are the building blocks of our food chain. As 80% of the world’s population use herbal medicine as part of their primary healthcare, seeds are also the building blocks of our health.
Herbalism, healing with medicinal plants, is a sensory language, one that speaks both to the body and the land. It is a conversation currently open to anyone who picks and dries and macerates and tastes the plants that grow abundantly in hedgerows, on canal banks, in gardens and on roadsides.
