DSCN7011We are pleased to announce our Summer Workshop Programme for 2017.

The workshops will be run by myself, simone melanie, and I have studied and worked with plants for over 20 years. I am passionate about herbs and want to educate and empower people to reclaim herbal medicine as their own. Since 2013 I have run Solar Ripe selling Organic Herbal Teas and Remedies that I blend and prepare myself, and run regular workshops. All sessions will take place at our Medicine Garden, Craigencalt Farm, Kinghorn Loch.
