Herbs, particularly the wild kind are my passion.
My interest in herbs started as a young girl. Years later, it now fills every corner of my life and cupboards. It started, as it does, as something that was just for me but has developed and deepened over the years.
I am passionate about sharing this ancient knowledge with all who are interested in exploring the lost world of wild medicinal herbs: these medicinal plants are often referred to as weeds, growing abundantly amongst our hedgerows, fields, gardens, and the green spaces within our towns and cities.
Herb craft: the use of plants as medicine, is as ancient and universal as we are.
We have used herbs for our health and well-being since the beginning of time and at times been burnt at the stake for it. It is only recently that we have forgotten this ancient knowledge and I feel now more than ever it is an important time for us to be reconnecting with the earth, the seasons, and the incredible plants that grow all around us.
You don’t need to be living in the countryside to use and work with wild herbs, they can be found growing and thriving wherever you live.
Herb craft is about using the plants that grow around us, to support us daily in our holistic well-being. It is a practice that grows with us through the seasons. It’s not something that a textbook can teach us alone, it’s about being out in nature, connecting with and learning about the plants through our direct experience.
If you would like to learn more I run seasonal workshops, year-long courses, and walks in various locations across the south of England including the Sustainability Centre in Hampshire, River Cottage in Devon, and The Kingcombe Centre in Dorset. Details and dates of workshops can be found on the workshop page.
