About this event

Tree Medicine Across the Seasons

In partnership with the Woodland Trust at Glen Finglas, outdoor educator & naturalist Lauren Lochrie of Herbal Homestead, will be taking participants on an immersive, arboreal journey to explore a handful of native trees and their uses across the seasons.

Glen Finglas estate lies in the heart of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is part of The Great Trossachs Forest National Nature reserve. With an emphasis on conservation for the benefit of people, wildlife and the environment, we have planted, protected and restored this incredible landscape over a quarter of a century. The Estate has something for everyone and this workshop can be just for you whereby Lauren will help you better connect with nature and the nature of yourself.

The best way to really get to know any tree is to observe and work with it as it changes throughout the year, and by making room for deeper insights, you will simply start to see the forest in a new way. As we slow down to connect with seasonal rhythms and abundances, we too can learn to find a better rhythm within ourselves, appreciating what may have been overlooked before.

Depending on the time of year and tree, participants will learn about and prepare different remedies, crafts, and food stuffs from sap, leaves, catkins, roots, twigs, flowers, berries, bark, cones and associated fungi.

Several tree species will be followed across the seasons at each workshop - observing and noting their changes - but only one key species will be worked with each time to make a preparation (remedy, drink, personal care item or craft item) best suited to its seasonal abundance.

These workshops can be attended as a one-off but learning and enjoyment will be enhanced if experienced as a four season continuum.
