About Healing Weeds

Healing Weeds started with a mission to share knowledge about the amazing plants that live around us and to empower people with practical skills to confidently make herbal remedies from these wild medicines. Foraging walks are a chance to find different plants, see where they grow and and learn more about how to harvest them and what healing properties they hold. Wild medicine workshops are practical courses, teaching you easy ways to process these plants, including how to make infused oils, decoctions, tinctures, tea blends and balms.
