Starting later this month I will be hosting a four season herbal course at Meadowsweet Organics. It will begin on Sunday 26th February when we will be exploring what’s available in the winter and focusing on using roots in herbal medicine.
Each session will include a herb walk and practical herbal medicine making session, in the first one we will learn how to make an infusion, decoction and herbal vinegar.
The Spring session will be a very exciting one focusing on leaves and we will go on a herbwalk around the Falkland Estate and learn how to make infused oils and poultices with a focus on first aid and nutrition.
In the Summer we will look at medicinal herbs and flowers growing on the farm and make herbal balms and tea blends.
The autumn session will be all about harvesting, storing and making remedies for the winter with a focus on fruits and we will make tinctures and syrups and look at the immune system.
Throughout the course you will have the chance to create your own herbal through note taking and picture taking or drawing the herbs that we explore, so it’s easy for you to refer back to it in the future as you build up your herbal knowledge. You will also develop your herbal medicine kit and skills in medicine making as we will create new remedies each time.
By the end of the course you will have more confidence in using herbs for yourself and your family as well as growing and foraging for yourself. You will also have a good opportunity to meet other interested in herbs as all of the sessions will include lunch with a good opportunity for socializing and discussions.
Each sessions costs £30 or £100 for the whole season and a deposit will be required to secure your place. See attached flyer for 2017 dates.
