Join wild women herbalists Edwina Staniforth (Hodkinson) and Danielle Kay in the magic permaculture garden at Offshoots in Burnley for our 5th year of Weeds and Wild Medicine! This transformational course will help you reconnect to the Earth and learn the basics of this ancient form of healing. The course runs once a month over 8 months (with a break for summer), so you get to know and work with the plants as the wheel of the year turns. Set within Towneley Park, we harvest the plants from the organic permaculture garden and surrounding woodlands, hedgerows and grasslands. Working mainly outside, we learn to identify wild medicinal plants, following their growth and change from early spring to late autumn and we teach you how to use them in medicine making and wild food. By the end of the course you will know how to make salves, creams, vinegars, tinctures, lotions, herbal oils, honeys, elixirs, teas, nettle beer, fruit leathers, glycerites, hydrosols, flower essences, dandelion coffee, wild garlic pesto and more; some of which you will be able to take home for personal use.
The course is £480 for the whole course or £70 to do an individual day.
Dates for 2019 are: Saturday 30 March, 27 April, 18 May, 15 June, 20 July, 21 September, 26 October, 16 November.
