A day course at Holt Wood in North Devon where you can learn about harvesting and making products from medicinal trees and shrubs.

You will see a variety of native and introduced medicinal trees and shrubs in a woodland context. There will be sessions on good harvesting practice, drying and preservation techniques. You will also see how to make a variety of preparations suitable for health and skin care, such as capsules and ointments. This day course is an ideal event to combine with the Designing the Medicinal Forest Garden day course or our new course on Medicinal Herbs in Historical Practice.
