Join us to learn how to make some herbal medicine chest essentials, in this practical workshop. We will craft tinctures, syrups, elixirs and more from herbs, honey, vinegar, alcohol, and sugar. Some of the herbs can be found in your kitchen, others grow as weeds in Amsterdam. You will take home a collection of simple, safe remedies to help ease you and your family through the winter. Bring along a small notebook and pen. Materials and recipe sheets will be provided.

A well earned dip after a sunny 2 hour herb walk!

Haarlem - Rotterdam - Den Haag
Who fancies joining me for a herb walk in one of these locations? Let me know and we can sort out a date. I have several apprentices living in these places now, they are such great places and it would be good to look at your most local situations together. Also to help you to connect to each other.

If you are in Amsterdam, or can easily get there, you are very welcome to come out foraging with me whenever possible. Some of you live around the corner from my home (in the Watergraafsmeer part of town) or the school where I work (in Oud Zuid). If so, just send me a What's app or text to see what's possible that day / week. If you are further, let's set a date. NB: I am slow to listen to voice mails - What's app, sms or email are the quickest ways to reach me (06 275 969 30).

Zoom Gatherings
Online Zooming for past and present apprentices began in April 2020. If that's you, drop in anytime!

No experience is needed - No pressure to attend each time - Just drop in when you like!

This is a good opportunity to have a chat with me, ask any questions and sometimes we plan ahead to make herbal preparations together such as creams, elixirs, pills, and tinctures. We chat about anything - not only herb stuff.

I think it's always nice to put a face to a name, especially if you are following the course from far away.

to the Urban Herbology channel to be alerted of videos, when uploaded. Those which I make specifically for the course will not show up on the public YouTube channel.
