Your host

Maria Fernandez Garcia

Maria is a Bristol-based forager and herbalist who started Healing Weeds to create a fun, human and relatable way to access foraging, no matter your experience.

Maria absolutely loves sharing this easy-to-learn knowledge through foraging walks, workshops and courses in Bristol where she shows people how to confidently identify and use some of the most common (and often most healing) plants in their local area. Get in touch with her if you'd like to learn more www.healingweeds.co.uk/links or on Instagram @healing.weeds

What people are saying

We love Maria! After our time together, we spent the rest of the day identifying and nibbling on all the edible plants we passed by. Previously overlooked plants and flowers are showing up everywhere, and we’re now even more alive to the plants we don’t know in a way that we feel able to learn and add to the foundation that Maria gave us!

Go and do anything that Maria puts out because she has the most wonderful presence and warmth backed by an unwavering knowledge of medicinal plants ❤️

A fun time out learning about edible and medical plants.

Celia Somlai, Mar 2022

Had a wonderful, Informative day out with Maria - I didn’t have much prior knowledge to foraging but she works really well with explaining the plants properties, how to harvest and what you can make it into to all levels of experience! I wish I picked more to bring home with me but feel like I can recognise and go forth with foraging and making now :) would absolutely recommend to anyone to get back in touch with nature
