A Herb Walk will last approximately 2 hours.

During the walk a variety of plants will be identified and discussed to give participants an understanding of the abundance of medicinal plants in our fields, hedgerows and gardens.

Kaye can identify many of the plants growing in the natural environment and give practical information about how best to harvest the wild medicine available throughout March – October.

Reliable harvesting guidelines for many roots as well as leaves, flowers and fruits will be discussion points as well as the legal obligations we must adhere to as foragers.

Each location is different and hence every walk will be too. However, the same area can be covered 3 times a year and provide a whole new materia medica each time!

Walks begin in March with the first new green growth of spring and end in November after the clocks change, this late autumn is the time of harvest for roots and berries such as Dandelion, Burdock and Hawthorn. Preparations can be made indoors if facilities are available as a bespoke session for groups.

Kaye makes many of her own medicines used in her herbal practice and can give the benefit of her experience on how to harvest, process and store many of the valuable plants which grow all around us.

See Events Calendar for locations and dates of Healthy Herb Walks.
