spring weekend herbal workshopSo who wouldn’t wish to spend a fabulous long weekend (or longer, if you choose) in the gorgeous south of France in the foothills of the Pyrenees?

The month of May is a wonderful time to visit the haute vallée de l’Aude. Spring has sprung. The weather is glorious with a backdrop of beautiful snow-capped mountains.

An escape from the normal humdrum with a chance to meet some new people and an opportunity to experience somewhere that little bit different.

So some brief details… of this Spring Weekend Herbal Workshop

The weekend will kick-start late Friday afternoon with a meet and greet aperitif and a brief introduction about the upcoming weekend.

The Saturday and Sunday will be full days with a half day finish after lunch on the Monday. The workshop will include an introduction to herbal medicine, a herb walk in the beautiful Aude countryside, a visit to a local French market and the opportunity to make at least two herbal products to take home. Don’t worry for those travelling we’ll ensure you don’t exceed the 100 ml liquid carry on flight allowance!
