Foraging and wild medicine workshop in (Sussex Autumn 2019)

With The Life Adventure

Join us for this autumn foraging and wild medicine workshop where we’ll be gathering and processing of plants for food and medicine. This 5 hour outdoor session, run by our expert forager and herbalist Alice Bettany, is designed to introduce you to a wide variety of plants that have been used by our ancestors for healing, nourishment and enjoyment. We begin the cycle of the year looking at the first green plants of autumn. The time together will focus around gaining an understanding of the qualities of each season whilst using all our senses to help experience the properties of the plants we are working with and will involve making a variety of foods and medicines together around the campfire in the afternoon.

This foraging and wild medicine workshop is open to anyone who’d like to learn more about wild nutrition and herbalism and in the process you will gain confidence and understanding on how to identify plants in their different habitat. You’ll also learn how to gather respectfully and sustainably and to participate directly in the different processing methods of the plants in their seasons to turn them into food and medicine. It’s a truly beautiful, memorable and grounding experience which we can personally highly recommend.

A selection of tea’s and hot water will be provided and of-course we will make some fresh herb brews along the way.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to meet and greet. Please bring suitable footwear for walking on farmland, warm clothes (even if it is sunny) and wet weather gear just in case. Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to help you remember the plants, and a basket for foraged goods.

No previous experience is necessary for this workshop, but as well as having an incredibly enjoyable few hours away from the worries of the world, what you’ll experience is:

  • The opportunity to learn ways to tune in to your senses
  • A chance to get to know plants using all of your senses
  • Meet and identify lots of wild, abundant, local plants that you can eat

 

The location is right near the National Trust’s Sheffield Park, Uckfield, East Sussex. Maximum 10 participants.

Timings

We begin at 10am and finish at 3pm. Dates will be announced over the coming months for our Autumn foraging session so check back for details, but it will be in the month of October.
