Independent One Day Herbal Sessions for Groups
I offer one day herbal sessions where the mornings are spent discussing everyday common health conditions and how they can be managed using herbal remedies and the afternoons are spent making herbal remedies. Any of the following talks and workshops can be booked for groups of 5-10 people. I can also come to you. We need a kitchen with a cooker, table and work surfaces and space to comfortably hold the group with seating available.
Cost for each whole day herbal session is £60 per person. This includes comprehensive handouts and all materials, recipes and remedies to take home with you.
Informal talks can also be arranged without the practical session & run from 1.5 hrs to 2 hours. Cost £10 - £20 per person income dependent.
Topics to choose from include:
Introduction to Herbalism & Herbal Remedies
The workshop includes an informal introductory talk on herbal medicine focusing on some familiar plants including those “weeds” you usually want to get rid of looking at how they can be used to support your health? This is followed by a practical session where you get the chance to make some simple herbal remedies that you can make and use at home. All recipes, ingredients and necessary bottles and jars will be supplied.
