Hedgerow Medicine and Medicinal Wild Plants



Your instructor will welcome you and you will then spend the morning  identifying, describing and collecting a selection of native, wild, medicinal  plants from around our stunning 250 acre woodland.  With each plant we will describe how to identify it, its medicinal uses and how to prepare it.

We will arrive back at the camp area in time for a quick lunch (not provided) and the afternoon will then be spent making a wilderness first aid kit. Depending on the plants available we will make a selection of preparations including;- creams, ointments, tinctures and liniments as well as drying and mixing plants for making infusions to treat a range of common ailments including cuts, bites and stings, burns, bruises, coughs and colds etc. All of which you we be able to take away with you.

This course operates outside, in our woodland and is partly based around an expedition style camp. Please bring a packed lunch with you. Hot and cold water will be available for making drinks.  Basic toilet facilities are available on site.
