TESTIMONIALS FROM 2023

"I absolutely LOVED this course and I'm sad it's ending. I have learned so much and I'm really excited about working on my herbal notes over the winter and then getting ready for next year's foraging season, hopefully starting with some hazel catkins in early spring. I never thought I would be able to go for a walk and recognise so many of the plants in the area! Teas and skincare were my favourite parts of the course, but I thought everything was interesting and I enjoyed doing my foraging homework and finding five new plants every time. I now see my surroundings through the lens of which plants grow there, which is really fun." Robyn

"The course was an absolute game-changer for my connection with wild plants and how to use them on a daily basis. Even though I’m skilled at recognizing many different plant species, this course took my understanding of wild plants to a whole new level by teaching their properties and practically demonstrating how to, for example, make my own creams and salves for skin care. Not only did I learn how to harness the power of plants to nurture my skin, but I also enjoyed the fun activities in the course, like foraging for wild plants, preparing delicious food and creating a wholesome evening together. Moreover, the course's emphasis on distinguishing edible plants from potentially harmful ones was greatly needed for me, as I tend to eat what I assume is edible and we know how bad that can end! The course boosted my confidence while foraging and exploring the outdoors. Now, I'm able to gather ingredients for my meals with the assurance that they're safe and nourishing!" Sanaz
