Twilight Foraging & Wild Medicine Walk
Come along at the height of summer when an abundance of wild flowers will be available to learn about.
An evening stroll, learning about some basic botany and plant families as well as the medicine these floral delights have to offer us. We will have the chance to see a large variety of wild medicinals in Alice’s herb garden, where she grows both wild species as well as cultivated herbs.
We will end the session with some tea tasting and wild treats and the chance to make your own simple tonic to take home and brew.
On the day, follow signs to reception upon arrival and we will meet by the main campsite barn. Please bring suitable footwear for walking on farmland, warm clothes (even if it is sunny) and wet weather gear just in case. Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to help you remember the plants.

How many hours?
It was a fascinating and informative day. Alice’s enthusiasm for her subject is clear. An amazing day learning when you don’t even realise!
I have participated previously in an Autumn foraging course with Alice and this time attended the summer Twilight foraging course and it was brilliant! Alice was so welcoming, knowledgeable and the setting was a perfect summer's evening. I learnt so much about plants and their medicinal and herbal properties. Thank you Alice and Circle of Life - a beautiful evening to take a wander with you 🙂
I loved the passion of the teacher. She was so enthusiastic about her expertise, respectful, knowledgeable and connected. I really enjoyed learning about the botany of the plants we looked at and taking the time to explore some of the plants in detail. The feast was magnificent!
