Would you like to know how to use herbs to support your wellbeing but don’t know where to start?


In this beginners workshop, you will be introduced to a variety of herbs and shown how to use them to make teas, tinctures, oil infusions and balms. An opportunity to indulge in home herbalism to discover and connect to the plants growing around us.

The workshop will include:


– how to dry & store herbs

– how to make herbal tea infusions

– how to make a herbal oxymel

– home made cake and herbal tea tastings

– how to prepare an oil infusion

– how to make a soothing balm

A homemade cake & herbal tea break is included in the workshop, prepared using herbs grown in our community garden. The cake will be gluten free & vegan.

Please get in touch if you have any other dietary requirements.

All materials will be provided but please wear clothing suitable for the outdoors as we will try to spend some time in the garden (and we can’t guarantee sun unfortunately!).

Everything you make in the session will be yours to take home, including:

– a herbal oxymel (made with honey)

– a herb infused oil

– a herbal balm


The herbs you will be using during the session have been grown and dried on site in our community garden or foraged from local wild spots!

The herbs we will work with during the day will include:

– calendula

– chamomile

– nettle

– mint

– rose

– and many more!

** Please note – the oxymel and the balms are made using honey / beeswax from our on site sustainably managed bee hives **
