|Venue:||Werf Food Garden|
Learn to look at the herbs in your garden from a medical herbalist’s perspective and find out how to use them in everyday life for the prevention and treatment of common ailments.
This fascinating insight into natural medication hosted by Food Garden Manager Megan McCarthy and facilitated by registered phytotherapy practitioner Dr Caren Hauptfleisch promises a morning of exploration within Boschendal’s extensive vegetable and herb garden.
The tour will start off with a short introduction to herbal medicine followed by a visit to the gardens. Here, guests will “meet” the plants — taste and smell them, compare species of the same genus, and gather samples for preparations such as drying and preparing infusions, poultices and tinctures. Megan, as always, will share seeds and cuttings.
With plenty of opportunities to ask questions, this interactive tour is a rare, hands-on event to learn from an expert in her field.
