Our regular courses and events take place in the beautiful woods and meadows of Wiltshire, Berkshire, the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Chilterns, and the New Forest. We also run coastal courses in North Devon and occasional events in the wilds of Ireland, on the Gower Peninsula in Wales and in Lincolnshire. We run a variety of herbal medicine events, practical woodland workshops and each year host the UK & Ireland Medicinal Mushrooms Conference in November, soon to be in its 6th year!
