Wild Medicine Academy

Learn about wildcrafting medicinal plants from your local neighbourhood and how to create delicious and nutritious meals and medicines with them. In person wildcrafting walks, online courses, workshops and beautiful ebooks are all part of the Wild Medicine Academy offering. 

The Fully Online Wild Medicine Academy Offering is on its way

Stay tuned for updates on the Wild Medicine Academy online courses, available to anyone, anywhere in the world. These beautiful courses will inspire budding herbalists and herb lovers, and provide experienced herbalists with an opportunity to deepen their plant connection and communication skills. 

First course on offer will be the comprehensive four module ‘Elixirs’ taking you from elixirs in their historical and mythical context, through alchemy, practical preparations and modern strands of elixir making, culminating in an elixir ritual to take you into elixir mastery. 

I’ve been teaching and creating courses in herbalism for over seven years now, mostly for advanced diplomas and degrees. The Wild Medicine Academy offers a bridging option for anybody with or without herbal training, to develop practical skills in herbal medicine making, while walking an illuminated path into the field of intelligent plant medicine.
