An Experiential Course in Herbal Medicine with Anne McIntyre at Trill Farm:
This seasonal course over four weekends throughout 2015 will provide you with the knowledge and skills to use the extraordinary resources of the medicinal plants growing around you.
Renowned herbalist Anne McIntyre will guide you on a journey of discovery: identifying and foraging wild herbs, understanding their medicinal properties and uses, and sharing the skills to create and take away a range of preparations for health and well being.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Forage for seasonal wild herbs
- Identify useful wild and cultivated medicinal plants (herbs, flowers, trees and shrubs)
- Know and understand the medicinal properties of the plants you identify and gather
- Understand more about the major systems of the body (digestive, respiratory, nervous, cardiovascular, urinary, endocrine, reproductive, musculoskeletal & skin) and how to promote their health
- Select the right herbs to treat common ailments of each system and know how to administer them
- Prepare infusions, decoctions, creams, lotions, ointments, glycerites and tinctures
This course is for people with an interest in knowing more about herbs and health. This includes lay people, students and newly qualified herbalists wishing to brush up on their plant identification and understanding of medicinal plants, for gardeners wanting to deepen their knowledge about the plants they know and love, and for anyone interested in sustainably using the natural resources around them for supporting their health.
