Description

Join us for a day of Herbal Remedy Making at Chagfood Community Market Garden. In this stunning location on the edge of Dartmoor we will explore together medicinal herbs growing in the field, and how to make useful everyday remedies with them.

This workshop is for anyone with an interest in herbal medicine, remedy making, natural health, plants, nature… Also if you wish to learn a new skill, meet new people, and spend the day in a beautiful natural setting!

Discover herbs growing in the field, harvest leaves and roots, and make remedies with a selection of fresh and dried plant materials. Learn about the medicinal properties of plants, their actions, and uses as remedies.

Be guided in making a range of internal and external preparations:

  • Infused oils: for use in massage or to add to salves, balms and creams

  • Skin salve / Balms: for achey joints and muscles, cuts and skin abrasions.

  • Chest rub: for easing coughs.

  • Syrups: cough syrup, and stress-relieving syrup for anxiety or nervous tension

  • Herbal infusions: for soothing digestion

We will make enough remedies on the day to donate produce to the mobile dispensary for Herbalists Without Borders UK, this is a Bristol-based organisation whose aim is to provide free herbal medicine support to asylum seekers and refugees. See more information about Herbalists Without Borders UK by clicking here.

The fee for the day is £55.00 per person (excluding booking fees); this includes samples of remedies to take home, handouts with all recipes, and lunch (made with fresh produce from the field).

Booking is essential - booking soon recommended as places are limited.

See you in the field!
