What you'll do

What about autumn and winter? Can you still find medicine in these months?! Yes!

Join this immersive learning experience to up-skill yourself in the art and science of making medicine with wild plants - you will learn how to make powerful medicines that taste great and support your immune system!

Maria will help you unearth the delights of sustainable foraging and plant identification. You will discuss common plants you can find in the hedgerows at this time of year as well as which of these are immune supporting and stimulating for our body!

You'll start the experience with a foraging walk to explore the different healing plants still around in winter. You’ll then take to the wildcrafting station to blend ingredients and make an immune supporting fire cider tonic with the herbs you have seen and gathered on your walk. We will discuss the multiple ways to blend different herbs, combining taste and properties so you can make your own delicious set of botanical infusion blends to take home and enjoy.
