Lynn also offers bespoke trainings for businesses, such as restaurants, bars and colleges. Please contact her directly by email to discuss possibilities.

Workshops and Walks
Urban Herbology walks and workshops enable people to connect with their local landscape and learn about how to forage and use the incredible edible and medicinal plants which surround us.

Lynn Shore has been enthusiastically teaching Urban Herbology foraging and crafting skills in Amsterdam for the past 10 years and she would love to pass on some of her knowledge and skills to you! For her background, see the About page.
