Here you can learn about the versatile side of medicinal herbs. 
In 5 sessions of 3/6 hours you will learn some commonly used herbs known. You learn what they look like, how you can harvest and dry them, how you make an infusion, a medicinal oil and wine. In particular summer herbs will be discussed. 
The lessons are for practical use, so you can soon start to work with herbs at home.


The following topics will be discussed: 

  • general use and application of herbs
  • recognizing herbs by observation and signature
  • summer herbs and their versatile use and application

  • This course is a kind of introduction, and may precede the herbal academy, which starts in September. Theory and practice will alternate. Moreover,this summer you can do things with herbs after following this seminar.
