Description

 Introduction to Herbal Medicine – Full Day Workshop

Slightly longer version of the popular local half day Introduction to Herbal Medicine workshop. Like the mini version, this course will run with a minimum of 2 participants, maximum 6. I prefer to work with a small number of participants. Working with smaller groups benefits all participants.*

Price is per person for full day. Price includes handouts, herbs in tasting session, materials for product preparation and at least one product to take away at the end of the day.

This is a full day workshop. Ideal way to pass a day if you have a friend or family member visiting or, if you are here on holiday. Spend some Thyme with nature.

Typical timings from 9.30 am until 5pm. Start and finish times adaptable depending on group requirements. 

Workshop Dates :

A local workshop in the haute vallée d’Aude, around the Quillan area. This workshop is available 4 times a year (Spring/April, Summer/June, Autumn/September and Winter/February). Each workshop is held on the fourth Friday of the month. Please select your preferred month/season above.

Example Itinerary:

This workshop varies depending on time of year. For example, summer walks are earlier. Winter walks may be later. Accordingly, lunch may be indoors. Suggested example of a half day itinerary below.

Further Information:

If booking 4-6 places for a group, please email for a discount code to enter at checkout. Group bookings over 6 are considered in some situations. Format for workshops for a group booking may be adapted to group preferences, where possible. Courses for solo participants are available. For solo or larger group bookings, please email.

** The Herb Walk is not a hike. As a botanical pace, it is suitable for most levels of fitness. There are frequent stops to discuss a plant. A suitable route is selected for the group, after booking. This component of the course is largely dependent upon the weather. In extreme weather conditions (summer heat or winter rains) the walk is shorter. In some cases, it may be necessary to substitute the walk completely. The workshop will still proceed with necessary adjustments.

*** Choice of bringing a dish to share between all participants. Some people, with particular dietary requirements, prefer to bring their own. Therefore, lunch requirements are agreed after booking, in advance of the workshop. A prepared group lunch is available, at additional cost, for participants booking together.

Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear for the time of year for the walk. A bottle of water is always recommended, whatever time of year. Full details will be provided after booking.

Five Star Testimonial Reviews – Introduction to Herbal Medicine Full Day Workshop

What an enjoyable way to spend a day!
I learned a lot even before the best bit (for me) which was the Herbal Walk. Nicole has so much enthusiasm and knowledge for her subject that the time passed too quickly and it was suddenly lunch time. The picnic lunch included two or three salads, cheeses, bougerache, hummus, bread and was totally delicious. The day finished with us actually making a herb vinegar and a healing oil to take away.
A great day – thankyou Nicole!

It was a lovely day, Nicole, thank you so much. I learned such a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the delicious lunch. I keep spotting Lamiaceae now that I know what to look for!
