hedgerow basketry (reed mace) at Wowo (with Ruby Taylor): make a small twined basket out of reed mace (sometimes called bulrush) from plants we’ve harvested from the land at Wowo. Learn how to add a cordage handle and also how to harvest and prepare the material yourself. There’ll be time to connect with the beautiful surroundings, making the day a nourishing as well as a learning experience. Max 8 participants, cost £45. Bookings taken by Wowo directly. Contact them via their website: www.wowo.co.uk

foraging hedgerow medecine at Wowo (with Anna Richardson): autumn is abundant with wild produce. Discover some of the old ways of working with our native plants for food, medicine and other practical uses. In the morning we’ll walk through the landscape gathering seasonally available plants for these purposes, then spend the afternoon preparing and making things round the fire. Cost £35. Bookings taken by Wowo directly. Contact them via their website: www.wowo.co.uk

acorn day (with Anna Richardson): we’ll gather acorns from the woods and go through the different processes to make them into a good food. Learn a range of culinary uses and recipes and how to store acorns for the year ahead. Acorns are a highly nutritious and widely available wild food, valued by indigenous peoples throughout the world. Here, the oak is at the heart of this land, so eating from the tree is a connecting experience. Max 8 participants, cost £40

She also trained in Plant Spirit Medicine by Eliot Cowan and since 2003 has been mentored by archaeo-botanist Professor Gordon Hillman.
