Join me for a rambling wild medicine plant walk through the beautiful Cornish countryside, taking in the folklore, history and traditional uses of the plants, trees and weeds we encounter on the way. Our leisurely stroll will last for approximately two and a half hours, with a break for refreshments at the halfway point. The morning will end with a short nature immersion sound meditation.
The wild medicine plant walk follows the ancient Saint’s Way, and is a combination of herbal folklore and facts, plant identification, story-telling, and drinking in the sounds of nature. By the end of the morning you should be able to confidently identify a number of common medicinal plants. The digital resources which accompany the session are filled with projects, recipes and further resources to help you connect with them more deeply once you return home.
The circular route takes in an easy going, flat terrain which is suitable for most people in good health. However the nature of this particular trail does unfortunately make it unsuitable for wheelchair users.
Our stop off point will be Off The Path Coffee, a boutique tea garden with views over the Vale of Lanherne. Brunch / gin is an optional extra should you wish to partake.
The walk will begin promptly at 10 am. Instructions around where to meet and what to bring / wear will be sent to participants upon placing your booking.
Please note that the event is hosted entirely outdoors. For the enjoyment of all, participant numbers are strictly limited. Unfortunately due to the nature of our refreshment stop and meditation break, the event is not suitable for children under the age of 16, or participants wishing to bring dogs.
Detailed field notes with photographs, refreshments and a goody bag are all included in the price.
All reasonable measures have been put in place to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone participating in the plant medicine walk. Please see our terms of service page for details of our safety measures, and information about our cancellations and refunds policy before making a booking.
