During this hands-on foraging experience, you’ll explore the hilly meadows of Hanham which are home to many wild plants that are perfect for making healing tea blends. Using her local knowledge, your host Maria will guide you to the best areas to discover these extraordinary plants and help you unearth the delights of sustainable foraging and plant identification.
These plants love the sun so you'll be walking through scenic, open fields to find them. You’ll then take to the wildcrafting station to make a number of loose leaf tea blends with the herbs you have seen and gathered on your walk. Maria will expertly talk you through multiple ways to blend different teas, combining taste and properties so you can make your own delicious set of herbal teas to take home and enjoy.
All that walking and crafting is bound to make you hungry, so we know you'll enjoy the delicious, wild vegan lunch that our talented outdoor chef has lovingly prepared! Expect to taste wild foods in all different forms and be inspired to create your own dishes from locally foraged plants.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and advanced foragers.
Minimum fitness level required.
Meet at Gover Road, Hanham, BS15 3JZ
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.View more experiences by Healing Weeds
