Autumn Seasonal Eating & Herbal Garden Workshop at Glenmore House
Book via Glenmore House here
Join me for the Seasonal Eating & Herbal Garden Workshops with Mickey Robertson at the historic Glenmore House. These delightful days are timed to sync with the seasonal rhythm of our bodies alongside the seasonal rhythm of the garden.
From a garden perspective, each of the workshops will yield very different produce for lunch; as well as a changing visual perspective as the garden shifts from its late summer beauty and bounty through a colourful autumn; then as winter unfurls into a burgeoning new spring...and early summer.
From a herbalist and naturopath's perspective, each season reveals different plant material for both food and remedies, to enhance the seasonal cycles our bodies naturally travel during the course of the year.
Each workshop will begin with morning tea, enjoying a selection of my teas & tisanes. A garden ramble will follow, punctuated with pauses to focus on various plants, followed by a thought provoking talk and interactive workshop exploring the role of herbal medicines to support seasonal health with simple daily health care and self care practices to connect with herbs. A long-table, seasonal lunch then follows and after, there will be hands-on activities, making some of those herbal remedies to support seasonal health concerns: herbal tisanes, salts, oils & vinegars, hand & body scrub - a hugely fun component to each day!
In autumn we recover from holiday excess, we balance, consolidate and strengthen for winter. Reconnect with your natural and seasonal rhythm, move in flow with the change in weather, environment, length of days, and embrace seasonal produce as well as return to the foods that we’ve evolved to eat.
Welcome to your new seasonal ritual.
Live in each season as it passes, breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth. By Henry David Thoreau.
About the day
Anthia will begin the day with a Herbal Garden Walk & Talk about the healing power of medicinal garden herbs. To follow, Anthia will hold a thought-provoking talk and interactive workshop exploring the role of herbal medicines to support seasonal wellness, simple daily health-care, and self-care practices to connect with herbs.
From Mickey’s Kitchen Garden, we will enjoy a beautiful Seasonal Garden Lunch cooked by Mickey. “March offers the best of late summer’s produce, grown and ripened through the long, hot days. We’re still feeling the heat as tomatoes and cucumbers continue to swell on their vines, aubergines, and capsicums bulge, potatoes are there for the digging; while apples and figs are plentiful, alongside a wealth of herbs. It’s a luscious and languid time of year, heavy with harvest.”
In the afternoon, I will show us how to make Herbal Remedies to support seasonal health concerns whether it be herbal tisanes, herbal cooking salts, herbal oils & vinegars, herbal hand & body scrubs or steam inhalations and compresses. Anthia will also share her knowledge and clinical experience on Seasonal Eating For Seasonal Health using Herbs and Food as Medicine.
