Yarrow – the greatest herb of them all?

A one day workshop to support our understanding of our bodies natural immunity and how herbal medicine in the home can help our bodies prevent, combat and recover from respiratory infections.

The workshop will cover:

  • An  overview of the immune system and respiratory system.

Knowledge of herbal medicine is an important way to put your health and your families health back in your own hands.  I see part of my role as an experienced medical herbalist is to share practical and safe information so that people can better take care of their own immediate health and well-being, in natural and effective ways.

Join local Lewes herbalist & storyteller for a walk with a difference, as we connect with the plants and the landscape.    

Come and walk with me and let us find the stories of this land, by listening to the birds, looking at the herbs and being free to wonder. Will we find by their old folk names: Hedge Tapers, Fairy Wands, Carpenter’s weed, a heg-peg or scraw, cow parsnip or some Sailor’s tobacco? Or perhaps we shall seek the plants out by their scientific latin names come to understand some of their current day medical uses?

“In the end wild nature will save us” Thoreau

These walks are an invitation for us to truly find our place and presence within the landscape. Thety are suitable for adults who want to reconect with the land and the natural rhythm of the seasons. By weaving ourselves back into the web of the ordinary we find enhanced well-being and ease with our place withing the natural world.

Expect a gentle walk, with some inclines.  Dress according to the needs of the weather and your comfort.
