Introduction to Herbalism and Plant Medicine Workshop


10:00am — 4:00pm

Intro Herb

Spend the day in horticulture paradise learning about herbalism and plant medicine at our one-day workshop.

Spend a wonderful day at One Garden Brighton, home of our Stanmer Campus, and learn from our expert Plumpton College Horticulture tutors, to learn new skills on using plants in a different way.

Explore the benefits of traditional natural remedies and herbs and how they support our health so you can add them to your everyday medicine cabinet. You will also explore herbs suitable to plant in your garden, window box and allotment to get the most out of your space and ensure you always have the right herbs to hand. You will also receive a goodie bag of seeds to get you started on your journey connecting back with nature and using its gifts to heal.   

During the day, you will go foraging for plants, being guided in the correct method of harvesting and storage. A tea tasting session will be followed by a tincture-making and oil-infusing session, which you will take home with you. You do not need to bring any materials, only yourself.
