Learn how to make some winter herbal remedies with the abundant hedgerow berries available at this time.
Autumn is the time for deep nourishing, building up our stores of nutrients and supporting our immune systems ready for the cold months ahead. Along with the last few wild greens we have such an abundant variety of healing foods and medicines at this time of year. We will gather and fill our baskets together in the morning and make food and medicine around the fire in the afternoon. You might take home a hedgerow oxymel or enjoy some wild hedgerow syrup as well as picking up some fire by friction tips
On the day, follow signs to reception upon arrival and we will meet by the main campsite barn. Please bring a pack lunch which can be ideally shared with others, this brings such a treat to the day when food is shared. We can top up our lunch with some foraged goods too and will be nibbling away all afternoon on the foraged delights we’ve made. A selection of tea’s and hot water will be provided and of-course we will make some fresh herb brews along the way.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to meet & greet. Please bring suitable footwear for walking on farmland, warm clothes (even if it is sunny) and wet weather gear just in case. Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to help you remember the plants, and a baskets for foraged goods.
No previous experience needed for any of these workshops.
No dogs allowed please.
