Herbalism and Walking in the Alpujarra, Spain

April 21, 2008

I’ve received details of the above course which may be of interest to some of you.  The course is limited to 12 participants and is suitable for beginners and experienced herbalists alike.  It takes place every year in the Alpujarra region of the Sierra Nevada, Spain with expert herbalist Julio Donat.

Julio will introduce you to the vast and intriguing  world of plants, teaching you to identify the varied flora of the Sierra Nevada  (including medicinal, edible, and dangerous plants).  You will learn about the  qualities of different plants, collecting methods, drying, conserving and cultivating.

You will also learn about simple traditional preparation of plants, making infusions, decoctions, macerations, tinctures, unguents, creams, soaps, toothpaste and perfume.

So if you fancy a week away you can find out more at the Bootlace website or for more details of the week you can contact Fiona Primarolo by email.
