AvantGarden forest location and surrounding forest

Early Summer New Moon and Full Moon Foraging Sessions. Summer solstice new moon, Lunar eclipse full moon.
Special note: social distancing and hygiene rules will need to be adhered to throughout the workshop.
During this workshop, I will guide you through gathering wild spring edibles and identifying medicinal plants in the forests of Strausberg (Brandenburg). We will discuss the importance of following the seasons, been in touch with nature, eating wild herbs and the impact these have on our health. Following this first part of our session, we will return to the forest garden of AVANTGARDEN and I will lead a workshop on using your hand-picked products for preparing a personalised tonic, these will depend on the plants we find. Unfortunately for this workshop due to regulations, we will not be able to make a foraged food snack together, I will instead give you some tips and ideas on what you could prepare within the comfort of your home.
Sustainable, meditative, naturally medicinal, and healthy.
Gathering plants from their natural habitats gives us another layer of connection with nature. There is something very grounding about collecting, preparing, and using plants that grow naturally in our local forests. Like meditation, gathering allows you to be centred and in the moment. But there is something even deeper than this- a magical feeling that comes from the understanding of our symbiotic relationship with nature.
