Welcome to our seasonal Scottish foraging and herbal courses.
We invite you to explore and learn with us through the seasons beginning the 20th of March 2021.
This exciting set of online courses have been created and developed by Medical Herbalists and Foragers, Natasha Lloyd BSc (Hons) MNIMH AOF and Rachel Simmons BSc (Hons) MNIMH, of Gathering Nature.
Each of our courses are tailored to provide experiential connection with the magic of seasonal foraging which goes far beyond gathering plants, and draws on many years of accumulated research. We will escort you through our in-depth experience of the processes that extract the active properties of plants we gather. We will show you how to produce a number of useful products from plants from food, medicinal preparations, cosmetics, and crafts, and we shall celebrate the closing of each course together with a special seasonal cocktail.
The activities we practice together, under our supervision, are geared towards sharing positive ideas together within each course, fostering a sense of greater connection to the earth and a better understanding of our own health with the ultimate goal being the possibility of helping others and helping heal the imbalances of the modern world which are becoming so apparent today.
We are building a community and we're inviting you to join us.
