Apprenticeship Workshop



This workshop will guide you through the many wild plants which are in season for foraging and using as nourishing medicines, foods and for other purposes. We will gather at my home at 10.00, work on plant families, herbal crafting, gardening techniques and the healing wise woman system. Also of course a lengthy and detailed herb walk and making herbal goodies to take home. Materials, Light lunch, infusions and teas included Exclusive to apprentices. These are the lovely folks who are on my course. They study at home (through my online course, walks, correspondence with me and each other and practical experiments) Anyone can join the course but you do need to be committed to learning the material. It is not difficult but it needs a steady approach as it cannot be learned overnight or all from books/notes. To be an apprentice you need to want to delve into the natural world and monitor what is growing around us throughout the year. The course can be completed in a year, it can take longer, depending on what you want from it. The course may be started at any time. Apprentices attend my walks for free. They pay monthly for the course and whenever they want to join a workshop. Further details www.urbanherbology.org Booking for the workshop essential to allow for materials and food to be prepped by me. Payment via PayPAl or Bank transfer. I am kvk and BTW registered so business receipts are issued.
