Tree Medicine 2019

In this workshop we will meet native trees, in the garden and surrounding woodland, such as Rowan, Oak and Pine. We will learn how we can harvest and use their leaves, fruits, and barks for healing and maintaining good health. Topics such as Shinrin-Yoku (forest bathing) and communication between trees  will be discussed, and we will make a decoction from bark.

As well as looking at medicine from the trees themselves we will learn about some fungi and lichens that live on them, such as Usnea and Chaga, that we can also add to our herbal medicine chest.  Participants will have the chance to try various tree medicines throughout the day, and make a tree remedy to take home (inc. hand-out).

This workshop is suitable for adults who are interested in trees and/or herbal medicine. No previous knowledge required.

The workshop will take place at Solar Ripe’s Medicine Garden at Craigencalt Farm, Kinghorn Loch, and there will be a break for lunch, 1-2pm. Lunch may be eaten in the garden, or the café Barn by the Loch will be open to purchase food. Toilets and cafe can be found at the farm buildings. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.
