If you would like to learn about the natural pharmacy in your local area, please let us be your guides!
Sorrell Robbins, Medical Herbalist and your hostess, Alison Spiritweaver (that’s me) want to take you on an inspirational journey as Sorrell explains the history, medicinal properties and healing powers of the herbs in our parks, pathways and hedgerows.
Herb Walk You will never view the greenery around you in the same way again – from dandelions to st.john’s wort, nettles to nipple wort – we have found them all in the green networks around London.
During the day we will go for a walk in the woodlands and fields of the Surrey/Kent borders finishing up back at base for a workshop in making tinctures, creating herbal teas and ointments from the foraged herbs we find and other organic herbs and ingredients provided by Sorrell’s herb shop.
We want you to walk away from this day inspired and confident enough to make a few simple remedies from the common herbs growing around you, or from easily obtained ingredients.
Our day starts with an exercise to get to know each other and get the brain cells working – looking at local weeds and plants we walk past and on top of every day. You will be amazed at how much you already know!
Then we take our new and old knowledge of local medicinal plants and head off on a journey through the meadows surrounding my house, hunting and gathering as we go.
On our return we can enjoy a lunch break and a cup of herbal tea.
After lunch we get busy with creating remedies, using any herbs we found on our journey for tinctures, teas and ointments. We will provide the extra ingredients required, so that you can also make remedies bespoke to your own needs. These are your remedies for you to take home.
We will make time to discuss extras you may wish to learn about such as growing your own, wild harvesting, drying and storage methods.
There will also be time for sharing your questions and experiences of herbs throughout the day.
