Healing Herbalism: Mushroom Magic

Healing herbalism is a series of workshops that teach people how to collaborate with the earth’s treasures and make healing medicines with them. Curated by the community, we will learn, make and share what we create. We’re teaming up with 3 excellent teachers to lead interactive workshops making medicines to boost your immunity and care for your skin. We will learn about making sustainably sourced medicines from plants and fungi whilst learning about their effect on the body. Using foraged mushrooms and organically grown herbs from the Mobile Apothecary edible forest sanctuary and Rights For Weeds founder Isabella Johnston. Guests will take home a polypore birch mushroom and elderberry syrup, a fire cider immunity booster and a Chaga mushroom exfoliating skin cream to help you and your community this winter season.

Create Conscious Community – Renegade Urban Growers 

As part of our Mindful Permaculture theme, we’ve started the Renegade Urban Growers project which we’ve co-created with members of the community to provide online and physical resources that empower people to grow their own organic medicinal herbs and food sustainably and ethically, whilst equipping them with knowledge about the historical, cultural, spiritual and medicinal aspects of plants. We’re teaming up with teachers, facilitators and organisations to bring this information and access to amazing spaces to grow, to you.
