About this event

As the seasons shift, nature provides us with an abundance of wild berries, mushrooms, herbs and trees that are perfectly suited to support and nourish us throughout the winter months. Woodlands and hedgerows become a living basket of nutrient-dense ingredients that can aid our immune system, respiratory system and general wellbeing, helping us and our loved ones to stay nourished and well.

In this workshop, guided by Tasha Stevens-Vallecillo, you will walk the land and learn how to safely identify, harvest, store, and process seasonal wild ingredients.

You'll create a mini apothecary of potent folk medicines to take home - a winter gift to yourself and those you love. Learn to make:

  • medicinal berry tonics (both elderberry and rosehip)
  • our much-loved medicinal mushroom chai syrup
  • a potent spruce salve using beeswax from our sacred bee garden - a precious gift.

Learning these traditional skills is a meaningful way to reconnect with the land and the abundant cycles of nature. As we protect what we love, getting out into our local wild spaces fosters a deeper relationship between the land and ourselves.

Through foraging and medicine-making we learn more about our environment, meet like-minded people, and nurture a resilience that serves both people and the planet.

This event includes all materials, warm drinks, and a 42 Acres lunch from our Soil-To-Gut menu. You will eat food grown on the land you're walking.


Please speak with your licensed medical health professional if you have any health conditions or are pregnant.
