An introduction to foraging for wild plants in spring that can be used in the treatment of common ailments. So many plants that are considered “weeds” can actually be harvested to create effective home remedies. You’ll learn to identify a range of plants and come away with your own honey elixir and immune boosting spring tonic and hedgreow syrups. We will also make our own fresh, herbal teas and everyone can take away foraged plants to dry at home.
This course will also include some Mindfulness in the Woods activities, as we give you a range of practical techniques to help you bring Mindfulness in to your life using the power of nature. Through identifying, gathering and using these special plants we will be exploring our deeper connection with nature whilst empowering ourselves with new skills to heal, nurture and enhance our own wellbeing, mind, body, spirit.
This course is aimed at beginners to plant-based medicine and Mindfulness in nature. No prior knowledge or experience required. All this will take place in the grounds of the Harwarden Estate against the backdrop of the woodlands, orchards and fields.
