Wild Herbal Medicine For Self Care and Wellbeing

During this 3-hour wild medicine walk, you’ll learn how to use your sense of taste to discern the properties of the wild plants we find.

This method of working with plants is known as ‘organoleptic learning’ and herbalists down through time have used this simple method to discern the medicinal properties of plants.

You’ll also be taught the common wild plants that can be used at home as part of your personal and family self-care.

The walk is led by Simon Mills, one of Britain’s leading herbal luminaries.

“Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.  More, please!  I’ve been buzzing with renewed enthusiasm and intend to revisit all my past ‘herby’ knowledge (where did that go?) and reconnect with those lovely little healers. Thank you.” – Stella Roberts
