“Nature itself is the best Physician” – Hippocrates
The majority of the effective properties that nature provides are to be found in plants or trees as Herbs/Gums/Resins.
Focusing on the knowledge of how these properties can be utilised we will make:
- A Herbal Oil Infusion
- An Oleo-resin Salve.
- Health & Safety when using natural substances for cosmetic purposes.

Before the advent of the national health service (1948) all doctors & medicines had to be paid for. It was expensive, VERY expensive.
- In 1931 each doctors visit cost 5 Shillings (25p)

Permaculture Based Workshops
Give Your Plants a Fighting Chance
If you lived in the desert you wouldn’t go out and get a penguin as a pet – the conditions just aren’t right for them. But when it comes to plants would you know which were suited to the soil pictured, or even what type of soil it was?
Many plants fail because they are just not suited to the type of soil in your garden, but do you know how to identify what type of soil you have? It can make the difference betweeen success & failure.
This workshop will:
- Help you to identify your soil type
- Learn how & what you need to improve your soil
- Enable you to buy the right plants that will thrive
(Sorry we hate to disappoint but you will never turn a heavy clay into a light sandy soil – move house)
