Summary: 

This much loved hands on course on hedgerow herbalism run by medical herbalists Edwina Hodkinson and Danielle Kay moved online last year and has been extended for 2021. We are pleased to now offer a year long online course beginning in March, working with the seasons, connecting to wild and medicinal plants, learning how to work with them to create powerful plant medicines for a home medicine chest for everyday ailments and illnesses.
Each month consists of a 90 minute Zoom call where we do 2 live herb tastings and discuss the month's key herbs, plus lots more content...monthly herb walks, practical 'how to' videos and comprehensive handouts on the member's page. If you miss the Zoom call, the recording is put on the member's page soon afterwards.
This year we aim to build on previous years and go on the road more to visit different locations and check out the plants and people around the UK, look more at cultivating herbs in community medicine gardens, and get more into the wild food side of things, after all food is the best medicine.
We cover a wide variety of plants and teach how to make lots of different herbal preparations in a fun and relaxed style. Suitable for absolute beginners or those with more experience.
Early bird offer of £20 per month if you book before 28 Feb, or £25 per month after. We are also doing a free introductory Zoom session on 2nd March 7-9pm so you can check us out. To sign up or for more information see www.weedsandwildmedicine.co.uk.
This course is not training to be a professional herbal practitioner, however it will equip you to take care of your own and your family's health for common ailments and simple first aid using plants growing around you.
Come and join the herbal revolution

Wednesday 24 March 2021 Via Zoom

7.30 – 9pm UK time price £12 Workshop tutor: Sarah Spencer

Overview:

We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with growth, connection, adaptation and resilience, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives – on a personal level, in our societies and with regard to our uncertain and changing world.

In this interactive workshop we will explore principles derived from nature and how we can learn from them in a real and practical way for the circumstances we currently find ourselves in.

This workshop is relevant for all types of challenges:

personal, both physical and psychological
changing circumstances
Covid-related issues
worries about the state of the world
concerns about the future
We will also explore how we can use nature’s wisdom to be part of the solution to the world’s problems rather than becoming paralysed in the face of uncertainty.

Come engaged, up for some thinking and prepared to join in with the group.

I can’t promise that we will solve all the world’s problems in an hour and a half, but you will go away with some great ideas from nature’s 3.8 billion year old success story of thriving in times of change.

*Zoom is a video platform that is easy to use and we’ll send out more details about how to access the course and use the platform nearer the time.

Cost: £12 payable in advance. Places are limited.

A limited number of places for students and people with low income (under 15K) are available at £7.
Sorry there are no refunds available for this course, but if you are unable to attend please get in touch and we will try and accommodate you on a future workshop.
If you would like to take this workshop with a view to going onto the Think like a Tree programme there are more details here.

You can also turn your passion for nature into a career by becoming a Think like a Tree facilitator.

We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with resilience, longevity and harmony, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives.

By exploring principles derived from nature, this programme will guide you step-by-step through a design cycle that can be used for a wide range of personal circumstances – relationships, health, wellbeing, leisure and work.

You may want to make a significant change, some small improvements, or just want to be more content or effective in your everyday life, and whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.

The programme comprises six two and a half hour sessions with activities to do at home. During the six week programme you will build up the tools and resources to complete a design that is personal to you after the course. All course materials are provided and you will go away with a toolkit of tools and principles that can be used again and again. The home study is optional but you will get more from the course if you commit to the extra time – approx 2 – 3 hours per week.
