Early Spring Apprenticeship Workshop

Monday 18th February 2019

10.00 – 13.30


This workshop is open to my apprentices (from my online/blended course and past apprenticeship groups).

Early spring is a great time to forage, craft and plan new growth for the year ahead. This workshop is a chance to share time together, explore urban nature, talk over issues and build Herbology crafting skills.

Cost €50

We’ll meet at my home (in Amsterdam Watergraafsmeer, near Park Frankendael) and then work inside and out. Light lunch, infusions and teas provided.

Please email me as soon as possible to book your place.

If you would like to join the workshop, you must be a past or present student of my apprenticeship course (either on the full course or studying module by module).

Details on how to join the course.

May 21st – Urban Herbology Herb Walk

I’m pleased to announce another (and long overdue) Urban Herbology Wild Herb Walk in Amsterdam.  I’ll be running it on Monday 21st May 2012, from the main gates of Frankendael Park.  The walk will start at 11am and every one interested in finding out about wild herbs, which can be found in central Amsterdam, is welcome.

My previous walks have been great fun to organise and very well received.  We will take a relaxed look at the bounty of early summer herbs to be found in and around the park. The walk will last about 90 minutes and will probably end at the lovely cafe/restaurant Merkelbach, situated just inside the main entrance of the park. Cost per participant will be €8. Previous walks have been oversubscribed, it is essential that those wishing to join me book ahead. Please email Lynn.Shore@gmail.com or call me on 0627 596930.

During the walk I’ll share with you will…
Receive a useful handout, to refer to after the walk
Learn how to find and identify some safe, useful, local herbs,
Learn how to harvest with respect for the environment,
Learn how to use herbs safely in several different ways,
Receive some tastey Urban Herbal recipes.

And of course you will get the chance to meet other folk who like to know a little more about what’s growing beneath and above them!  If it sound interesting to you then please contact me.

Wild Herb Walk in Amsterdam

I am organising a Wild Herb Walk in Amsterdam, this November. If you are interested in coming along, please contact me so I have an idea of the amount of interest.

This will be a relaxed walk, in an easily reached location, learning how to identify, gather and use some common medicinal and food herbs which grow wild in the city.  Many beautiful, interesting and useful herbs are available at this time of year so why not join us, learn a little about them and get to know a few other UrbanHerbologists at the same time?

Further details will be posted soon.  Please get in touch via email or in reply to this post if you are interested.
