There are two optional workshops in June and July but attendance is strongly recommended. This is because they add a very practical dimension to the theory given in each of the modules and enable you to become more confident in two key areas - plant identification and plant preparations.The seminars (week or weekend) are held in beautiful West Cork, Ireland, overlooking Roaringwater bay and the atlantic sea.
These workshops cover:
• the practical side of making herbal preparations in the home.

• the identification of herbs

 the harvesting of herbs according to their properties eg.digestive,bitter etc

 • making preparations specific to the system eg.chest rubs, antil-inflammatory ointments poultices etc

• The course is designed for the beginner and is a non professional course which enables people to treat minor complaints for family and friends. It does not qualify a person to set up in practice as a professional herbalist This requires further training.
