Welcome to Weeds and Wild Medicine


Reconnect to our native (and sometimes not so native) wild medicines. This 8 day course is based in a permaculture project with access to the woodlands and grasslands of Towneley Park. We run the course for one day a month and follow the turn of the seasons. Working mainly outside, we learn to identify wild medicinal plants and follow their growth and change from early spring to late autumn and utilising them in medicine making and wild food. Guided by two qualified and experienced Medical Herbalists, you will learn to make salves, creams, vinegars, tinctures, lotions, herbal oils, honeys, elixirs, teas, nettle beer, fruit leathers, glycerites, hydrosols, flower essences, dandelion coffee, wild garlic pesto,  and more; some of which you will be able to take home for personal use.

    Hi – Im interested in the course are there any places left please?


  8. Hi Anne.. You can pay for each separate session which costs £70.. we do offer the discount of £60 if each day is paid for and taken as part of the whole course…which helps us plan better. Although most people chose to do the whole there are some who just do what they are able. If you look on the course structure page it will give you an idea of what we do each session.. but we work with Mother Nature and she sometimes decides what we do and if the seasons are early or late we may change things around at the last minute to work more closely with her and make the most of whats available
