Midsummer’s Day Herb Walk in Frankendael

Join me for another Urban Herbology Wild Herb Walk on, Tuesday 21st June, Summer Solstice 2011 at 11:00 13:30 (Please note, I have changed the time slightly)

The walk will be in Frankendael Park, Amsterdam, starting at the main (old) gate.

Handouts, including photos, notes and recipes, will be provided.

We will…
Take a relaxed look at useful wild herbs which are plentiful at this time of year.
Share ideas about how to use them in food.
Consider some of the herbal medicine uses.
Talk about some interesting herbal folklore.
Meet others who are interested in herb foraging in Amsterdam.

The walk itself will last for an hour or so and previously we have continued chatting over cups of herb tea and cake in Merkelbach restaurant, which sits within the park.

The cost for the walk is €5 per person.  Places are limited so please do contact me via email if you would like to attend.  The Urban Herbology www.meetup.com group can also be used to sign up for this.

I am really looking forward to seeing everyone on Midsummer’s Day and having a relaxed look at some of the herbs which are currently available in this beautiful park.

  1. Sounds wonderful! Too bad I cannot join this time, but next time whenever you have something arranged during weekend I’ll be there. I’m a beginner herbalist with an aspiration to use the important knowledge of herbs more in my life in the future.

    On a side note, do you perhaps have any information on further education possibilities in herbalism in the Netherlands or through distant learning abroad? I have been trying to search English study possibilities but have had little luck so far.


    1. Hi Lotte,
      Thanks for your comments. I shall arrange somethings for weekends in future and hope to meet you then. There are some very nice online/correspondance courses available for people interested in herbalism. If you look at the links on the side of this blog you’ll see two under “Wise Women Herbalism”. Checkout the link to Susun Weed in particular, great for courses – a wealth of information, very practical and easy to follow anywhere in the world – in English 🙂 Let me know if you want for information.


  2. Can’t wait. 🙂 Oh and big thanks for the links, I found some Susun Weed’s courses that seem very interesting. Hope to also meet you during one of the herb walks in the future!
