Join herbalists and best-selling authors Kim & Vicky on a full day of herbal learning. Starting with a herb walk, participants will learn to identify and reconnect with the stories of the seasonal, wild plants that grow all around. We will be harvesting the
season’s bounty along the way so bring any special scissors/clippers and small baskets with you (though we will also provide some).

We will then break for a vegan/gluten free lunch (provided)
followed by a workshop turning our foraged bounty in bespoke herbal remedies.

Each workshop will focus on 5 seasonal herbs, making a range of herbal remedies to take home and add to your own herbal medicine chest. Topics covered will include the identification of plants, chemistry, dosage, safety and a range of basic herbal recipes. You will make and take home your own recipe book and herbal apothecary kit, including three of the following:

- Infusions & decoctions
- Compresses & poultices
- Drying herbs for optimum freshness
- Juicing

All equipment is included, each workshop is £65 or £150
if you block book all three.
