Elder Farm Summer School


Elder farm

Monday 24th June 2019 – Friday 28th June 2019

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.


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



£450 and there are 20 places available.



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.

We can provide you with a list of local B&BS if camping is not for you.



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

From Monday to Friday we’ll be covering the following topics:


  • How to safely treat friends and family
