Growing and Foraging for Herbs at Dromana House

Marie Reilly MSc, MNIMH, MIRH, DipCoun

Sunday 17 September at 2:00pm–5:00pm

An afternoon workshop on growing and foraging your own herbs and wild flowers, and using herbs at home for maintaining good health and treating a variety of common complaints. The workshop will take place at Dromana House and Gardens, on the banks of the beautiful Blackwater River Co. Waterford.

The afternoon will begin at 2pm with a talk about the benefits of using home-grown and wild-crafted medicines, and we will then go foraging in the beautiful gardens and woodland around Dromana House. After the walk, I will demonstrate how to make some simple home remedies, such as herb teas, syrups, and ointments. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy a cup of tea and some light refreshments, and I will be happy to answer any questions that people have about making and using herbal medicines at home.

Admission is €15, and children under 12 are free. Tea and light refreshments are included. For further information or to book your place, please contact Dromana House on +353 24 96144/ info@dromanahouse.com, or The Lismore Clinic on +353 58 53200 / info@herbalmedicine.ie.
