For these three creative foraging sessions, we'll explore our inner-city green spaces and show you where to find and how to use wild medicines.
We'll be growing our knowledge of plants and fungi, learning what they look like, feel like and each session you’ll make a medicine for you to take home.
This is a chance to get closer to remedies you may have heard of, empower yourself with home-made medicine and take time to nourish yourself in nature with others.
A little more on your teachers:
- Ruby (they/them) is an artist, a forager, a mycological and botanical illustrator and craftsperson who will facilitate the creative elements within these workshops
- Maria is a plant educator, forager and herbalist who will share plant medicine knowledge
Suitable for any level of experience, including all foragers and medicine makers, friends of fungi and pals of plants both new and old.
There'll be space to have breaks if you need, you are invited to join as much as you would like, make notes and take photos.
You will come away with new skills and practices to continue on your own and with others.
In terms of accessibility, the walk will take place outside so please be prepared for the weather on the day. The terrain will be easy on foot, mainly paved, but potentially a little tricky for some wheelchairs.
