Foraging & Health - learn to find and make your own wild herbal medicine


Join us on this half day summer foraging walk - you'll learn about the medicinal properties of the wild plants that grow freely around us, then make herbal preparations from your harvest.

Take a walk with local herbalist Lucinda Warner to find out about the medicinal plants growing in your area.

You'll learn tips on how to forage safely and responsibly and some basic plant identification as well as discussing all the wonderful things you can make from your harvest.

During the summer months, you can find an array of wildflowers that are useful for a wide range of health complaints, as well as being vital for wildlife.

You'll take a leisurely ramble onto the Downs to meet some of these commonly found plants that are also some of the most useful remedies in the home medicine chest.

You'll also get the chance to make some simple herbal preparations from the wild plants you gather and discuss how to incorporate these into your daily life in practical and accessible ways.

Things you might make include mugwort infused oil, yarrow tea, an ointment, and a tincture (depending on what we find on the day).

This session is being led by Brighton herbalist Lucinda Warner who writes at Whispering Earth (

The cost is £25.99 and is suitable for beginners and those with experience.
