Orchards in Park Frankendael

Safe Meetings
Sadly, I can't offer group meetings at the moment due to the national regulations about social distancing. I am getting out and foraging regularly though and we have found other ways to meet! If you are in Amsterdam and want to come out foraging with me - at a safe distance just let me know and we will arrange it. I've seen a few of you recently in the Park Frankendael Orchards - that's the easiest place to work together as we can have a foraging orchard each and still be able to speak!

Zoom meeting 22nd May 2020

Zoom Gatherings
Online herbal Zooming for past and present apprentices began in April 2020. During recent Zooms we have made creams, elixirs, pills, tinctures and more. Let me know if you have a request to include.

Elderflower tea

Misummer medicine making. Also, whatever else comes up for the group. We will not be crafting a specific recipe this time.

If you are on the apprenticeship course and need a reminder of the zoom link, please let me know.

Motherwort - Leonurus cardiaca

No experience is needed to join the UH Zooms - they are a relaxed way to meet each other and talk about the plants, how your studies are going and anything else that comes to mind.
