HerbFest 2019 at Dartington Hall, Devon

Friday 17th – Sunday 19th May 2019

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

After fantastic feedback from delegates last year we are so excited to be returning to Dartington Hall this year for Herbfest 2019. 

This herbal conference for herbalists and herbal enthusiasts will include lectures, practical workshops and foraging walks, yoga, story-telling, music and much more. With brilliant speakers and teachers from a diverse background we hope there will be something for everyone!

I set up HerbFest to spread the love and wisdom of herbs and plants that I have acquired over the years from the fantastic teachers I have been lucky enough to have met. I am so happy it has been running for 13 years and I hope you will be able to join us and enjoy this herbal weekend.

Tickets are all inclusive of accommodation, all meals, full access to all the talks and workshops, plus yoga sessions and the entertainment in the evening. There are tickets for every budget from luxurious single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (£425) to student style rooms with shared bathrooms (£330). For those lucky people who live close to the venue we are also selling non-residential tickets (£255). Please visit www.herbfest.co.uk for more information and to book your ticket.

We hope to see you there!

PLANTS, HEALTH AND NATURE IN VALLDEMOSSA, MAJORCA

5th-9th November 2015

I am thrilled to be teaming up with my good friend Ana Azcárate to offer a small number of people the chance to join us on our new Plants, Health and Nature sojourn in Valldemossa, Majorca. We would like invite you to spend four days exploring the magnificent mountain areas of the Tramuntana, identifying the medical herbs growing there and learning how to prepare and use them for their amazing health benefits.  It is a really good time of year for plants as November is Majorca’s second spring – the autumn rains will have restored green to the parched island with a fresh burst of growth and life to the local plant world.

Ana Azcárate knows the area well and will be teaching the course alongside me.  Ana has studied herbs, natural cosmetics, aromatherapy, massage, nutrition, Ayurveda and biodynamic agriculture and is currently studying naturopathy at the Instituto de Estudios Naturales (IEN) in Madrid. She is the editor of a health and ecology imprint in Spain and one of the founders of Unabotánica, a natural cosmetic company in Caracas, Venezuela.
