HERBS FOR HEALTH – ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES
Herbs and wild plants have been used for food and healing, by all cultures, for
thousands of years. They improve the nutritional value, flavour and appearance of our food and many of them also have medicinal properties that are beneficial to health.
Growing even a small amount of our own food improves physical well-being, connecting us with nature and getting us outdoors for fresh air and exercise. Simple tasks such as sowing seeds, cooking a meal, foraging for your own wild garlic or preparing a simple home remedy all involve mindfulness, improving mental health.
The series of workshops, based on the wellness benefits of using herbs and native Irish wild plants for food and medicine, consists of four modules:
Module 1: Growing Herbs
Module 2: Cooking with Herbs
Module 3: Wild Herb Foraging
Module 4: Medicinal Herbs
Each module runs for approximately 60 minutes. The modules can be taken as a complete series at a discounted bundle rate, but each module also works as a stand alone individual workshop.
The initial workshops were presented live online via Zoom. You will receive a recording of each workshop (that can be downloaded so you will have it indefinitely) and supporting material for each module.
You will also have access to The Herb School community private Facebook group, where I will host regular live Q & A sessions. Members can post photos and questions on any aspect of using herbs and wild plants which I will answer personally.
You can find more detailed information on the topics and content of each module on the Online Courses page.
