More Info

Get yourself and loved ones fully equipped this winter to fend off those common cold and flu bugs.

Have you ever wanted to know more about your kitchen cupboard herbs, beyond seasoning your meals? We will work with Liquorice, Cinnamon, and Ginger and discover their incredible medicinal powers, supporting the immune system to respond to infection.

This hands-on, interactive kitchen-based workshop is designed not only to be an educational experience but also an invigorating exploration of tastes and aromas.

We’ll delve into these medicinal plants’ unique ‘energetics’ and discuss their varied therapeutic actions.  Beyond the theoretical, you’ll gain practical skills by learning to create your own herbal glycerite – a safe, herbal tonic for all the family. You’ll take your handmade concoction home, along with recipe notes, arming you with knowledge and resources to support your well-being as we transition into the colder months ahead.

With an emphasis on safety, our expert-led Q&A session will ensure that all your curiosities are catered for. We’ll provide practical tips and tricks to easily incorporate more medicinal plants into your daily life, helping you build resilience and maintain balance in the ebb and flow of modern living.

As the evening draws to a close, we’ll gather for a shared vegan meal—a chance to connect with fellow nature enthusiasts, exchange ideas, and reflect on the learnings of the day.

‘Kitchen Cupboard Herbs for Winter Wellness’ isn’t just a workshop; it’s a soothing balm for the soul—a chance to step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and rekindle a relationship with the natural world. Embrace this time of year, when the nights draw in and celebrate the season, slowing down and taking stock.

The 2.5 hour workshop includes handmade medicine to take home, receipe handouts and a light meal.
A wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one! Approach this winter with practical tools for self-sufficiency, educating and empowering yourself with herbal medicine knowledge.
