During your experience, your knowledgeable host Maria will pass on essential tips for foraging, including what to bring with you, how to harvest safely and responsibly, where to find the best plants and, most importantly, what you can do with them once you’ve found them.

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.

A very enjoyable afternoon. Maria is a great teacher.

Absolutely loved this experience, Maria was such a brilliant host, so lovely and knowledgable. Had a great time foraging and learning lots and would definitely recommend this experience. I am now taking the tips I learnt and using them in my day to day life and can’t wait to get out and do my next solo forage!

Maria is the most wonderful guide to foraging. We were new to this coming in, but wanted to gain an understanding of what we could do with the natural herbs and plants around our local area. Maria was so lovely, welcoming and knowledgable - and I was surprised at how much of a good time I had! We learned so much from her about the local area, seasons, what the local flowers and herbs could do and how we can use them in our everyday lives.
