Elder Farm Summer School

 

Elder farm

Monday 25th June 2018 – Friday 29th June 2018

What better way to learn more about herbal medicine than immersing yourself in it for a whole 5 days? Not only will you learn lots of herbal skills, you will also leave with your own herbal first aid kit.

Where?

The course takes place at Elder Farm, a 5.5 acre organic* herb farm on the Somerset/Devon border.

 

Costs

£450 and there are 20 places available.

 

Accommodation

There are 10 camping spots for tents at Elder Farm at £10 per night, first come first served. There is also the option of luxury bell tent accommodation. Please email helen@elderfarm.co.uk for more details.

There is also a campsite close by and we can provide you with a list of local B&BS if camping is not for you.

 

Food

We will be providing a wonderful organic and locally produced lunch each day. Gluten free and vegan diets will also be catered for.
