Herb Workshops 2016
Recognising, exploring, growing and harvesting Herbs
Growing herbs will
include the seasonal activities of growing herbs – preparing the
ground, sowing seeds, taking root cuttings, moving and dividing
plants, potting seedlings, weeding and harvesting what’s
of events during a workshop aren't given. On each day we will make
herbal teas from available herbs, identify growing plants and make
infused oils, tinctures, flower essences, vinegars and elixirs
depending on what is growing and the clemency of the weather.
Workshops are practical. Everyone who attends will get their hands
dirty from practical tasks. Instructions and support will be given
for anything unfamiliar. We will also talk about herbs, how they
grow, what they do and discuss whatever comes up.
We offer a pickup from Kingham Station on workshop days at 10am. There is an hourly train service from Birmingham to Kingham via Worcester. Please add something to your donation to cover this cost.
