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 useful resources to help you connect with the plants even 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 (in season) 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. Refreshments are offered in low season when the tea garden is closed.
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.
*Gift vouchers are available for this experience. Should you require a voucher to be sent to someone other than the person making the booking , please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at the time of purchase. Gift vouchers can be sent via email or post free at no additional charge.

I loved the plant walk! Whether you’re new to wild plants or already well versed, Sarah’s warmth and wisdom will open up new connections. This experience ticks lots of boxes – informative, sociable, reflective, engaging – and a lovely way to enjoy the outdoors.
Sarah is so lovely and enthusiastic in her teaching. She lead the walk with lots of care for all and the little pit stop for tea was delightful. There was also a beautiful drum ceremony at the end which was a magical way to end the morning 🙂
What a lovely way to spend a morning! A pleasant walk, good company, lots of plants to learn about along the way, and a stop for tea! It was a really pleasant and relaxing way to discover a part of the countryside I had not been to before. The drum ceremony was the perfect way to end the morning. It was so peaceful to sit in the sunshine and listen to the sounds of nature for a while before reconnecting with the world again. Looking forward to the next walk.
Thank you for a wonderful morning Sarah! It was really delightful to wander through the woods, listening to your wisdom of nature and sharing ancient knowledge. Really felt restored and connected through the conversations and the drumming meditation was a perfect end. Will look out for the next one!

Well worth forgoing my lie in! Thank you so much, it was an excellent balance of information, just being in the moment, and a beautiful drumming session to end the morning. Plus a coffee and informative ebook thrown in as well. Came away feeling restored

Thankyou for a lovely and extremely informative walk. Sarah has a wealth of knowledge to share on this topic, couple this with the medicine of being out in nature and connecting with the natural world makes for a great, refreshing couple of hours. Highly recommended. Thankyou also for the eBook sent afterwards Sarah.
