Garden Medicine Chest & Practical Herbal Medicine Making

Come along and share the delights of Natures Wild Medicine Chest with Nicola Dee Kelly MNIMH . We will be foraging the garden and hedgerow for treasures to create a wide variety of preparations. These will include poultices, compresses, infusions, tinctures, oils, ointments, syrups, flower waters etc.

As we head into Autumn its good to be familiar with herbs and plants that will strengthen our immune system and also soothe the chills and ills of the coming winter months.
Make your own herbal preparations to complete this kit to take it and the knowledge of how to use it home for basic self help for family and friends.

Costs including all medicine making materials are £60/day or £54 concession. On site camping, caravans or bespoke wooden cabins are available and vegan organic meals are available at an additional cost. Camping places are limited here please check with us for availability.
