Herbal Half Day Medicinal Trees Event: Herb Walk and Medicinal Tea Tasting


Medicinal Trees for Earth Day 2017

Herbal Half Day Medicinal Trees at Horizons Vert, Puivert

Ruth at Horizons Verts has very kindly offered the use of her tranquil corner of the world, on the edge of Puivert village, as our base for this morning event. Horizons Verts is in a beautiful area of meadow and woodland.

For 2017 the Earth Day theme is Trees for the Earth! As this event will run on Earth Day it seemed fitting to have a tree theme.

Jardin des plantes de MontpellierTrees are extremely important. Especially relevant, they help combat climate change. They also help us breathe clean air and are essential for communities.

There are several trees that are important medicinals too. Some are trees growing around you. You may know some of these trees but not be aware they have medicinal properties. Others, such as ginkgo in the image, you may have heard of though be far less familiar with.

So on to some brief details… of this Herbal Half Day Medicinal Trees

We’ll meet at 9.45 am for informal introductions and a 10 am start. We will begin with an introductory tasting of an herbal tea, or tree tea! A chat about two or three trees will follow and we’ll talk specifically about medicinal usage.

Thereafter we will have a gentle stroll around the grounds at Horizons Verts identifying some medicinal trees. This half day event will end relaxing with a different tree tea.
