Herbal Workshops

Herbal Workshops

I offer herbal medicine courses, workshops and seminars. And as soon as the weather is welcoming –
I can be found outside, connecting with the wild world and leading plant walks in the city and the country.
My current listing of herbal workshops is posted below. These are updated regularly – so be sure to check back for new events.
If you would like to book a herbal workshop specially prepared for your own group – that can be arranged too.
Perhaps you are curious about your own space – if so – you can schedule time for a plant medicine session in your own garden.
I can help you to identify the plants in your yard and teach you about the medicinal uses for the herbs we find there.
For a comprehensive herbal course – have a peek through my site to find out more about my Winter and Summer Intensives
and check out the blog posts with photos, plant thoughts and, of course, recipes.
My style of teaching is participatory, informative and fun – hope that our paths meet one day soon!

“Thank you again for such a nourishing workshop.
It is exactly what I needed to calm and centre me and get my creative juices flowing
and affirm all the goodness in getting to know the local flora and putting that knowledge to good use.”
