Simple, traditional folk remedies that leave the lightest footprint. The art of foraging for food and medicine is making a comeback, and to relearn these old ways is to lessen our impact on our environment.  With a focus on ‘weeds’ and plants which are considered pests to our environment, we teach people how to harvest, store and prepare them into old fashioned home remedies. This allows for cleaner  ‘weed’ control, plus an abundance of free, local herbs to weave into remedies!

FORAGE

Foraging is one of our most primal behaviours, and one that can feed the soul. It is a sustainable way to gather food and medicine, whilst doing your bit for ‘weed control’ in your local environment. 

Learning how to identify edible and medicinal ‘weeds’ is an extremely rewarding past time, and one that reconnects you with nature. 

GROW

Herb gardens are really just an extension of the vegetable garden, and can provide you with a year round supply of medicines, right at your back door. We have a strong emphasis on teaching people Herbal First Aid options, as well as encouraging them to grow their own Herbal First Aid garden.

Growing a garden helps to realign you with the natural seasons and cycles of the Earth, and provides a myriad of health benefits. 

CREATE

Sustainable, inexpensive herbal remedies are one of the most satisfying things you can make. Learn from seasonal remedy making workshops, or join or Wild Medicine Community to gain access to our private forums and recipe sharing. 

Home herbal remedies are an amazing resource for all of those minor First Aid ailments.
