This apprenticeship is seen as an opportunity for hands on and experiential learning in all the practical aspects of being a Herbalist. It is a glorious gift to really slow down and disconnect from the modern madness that is human life and dive deep down into the world of plants in a truly supportive atmosphere.
Learn how to listen to plants and make strong connections with the local medicinal plants of Arran Learn how to find or grow herbs, harvest them and make beautiful medicines, as well as how to use them safely and effectively for improved health.
