Trees can often be overlooked when it comes to their many uses and embodied wisdom. Working with trees can seem somewhat daunting, to overcome this and enhance your outlook, Lauren Lochrie of Herbal Homestead has developed this wonderful, seasonal course to help you 'pierce the green veil' by tuning into different trees and their uses across the year - working alongside different experts each season!

By practicing a range of hands-on activities, you will enhance your understanding of what wild parts are good to harvest when, and how to prepare and store them in different ways over the year. Learn how to do this mindfully, sustainably, and safely!

As we slow down to connect with seasonal rhythms and abundances, we too can learn to find a better rhythm within ourselves, appreciating what may have been overlooked before. This course will have something for the beginner as well as the expert.

Depending on the time of year and tree, participants will learn about and prepare different remedies, crafts, drinks, and food stuffs from sap, leaves, twigs, buds, flowers, berries, and medicinal fungi at the beautiful Cardross Estate, Stirlingshire.

This Autumn Course can be attended as a one-off but learning and enjoyment may be enhanced if experienced as a four-season-internship (booking on to the Spring, Summer & Winter courses too). Throughout the year we will take different routes around the estate and more information will be sent out beforehand, as well as recipes and resources afterwards.

- Hawthorn tree identification and habitat cues
