“Autumn brings a
change of mood in the garden”

This season encourages you to explore the garden and hedge rows for ripening seeds and colourful berries. The roots, bark and berries from the autumn garden help prepare us for the colder months and provide protection to the mucus membranes in preparation for a change of season to cooler temperatures.

This time of year is the last chance to harvest plants to process in the drying room and preserve the medicinal qualities of plants for winter use.

The autumn workshop will profile plants that are used for tonics and as medicines for the colder months.

This workshop provides you with a range of take home products to use and enjoy:

  • a bottle of liniment
  • a box of herbal blends for inhalations and gargles
  • a bottle of cold & flu oxymel
  • a bottle of nutritious syrup
  • a bottle of herbal tonic
  • an autumn of herbal beverage

You will also receive a workshop booklet with recipes and plant profiles for the season.

When you attend a full day workshop Valmai will also treat you to a tasty, delicious lunch and herbal beverages from the Phytofarm kitchen.
