Herbal First Aid for the Home

Want to learn about British and other family friendly first aid herbs that you can use to help yourself, loved ones and those in your community? Confused about conflicting information? Come and discover how to use plants as a herbal first aid for the home in the depths of beautiful Dorset on this one-of-a-kind weekend retreat with internationally respected herbalist 7Song. 

 

In two days we will cover 

 

- An Introduction to Herbal First Aid for the Home

- Plant Identification for the Herbalist

- Wildcrafting (the skill of gathering your own plants for medicine, food and other uses) 

- Family First Aid Kit Basics 

- Herbal Pharmacy: Preparations and Dosage 

 

7Song is a US-based community herbalist who has been immersed in plants and herbal medicine for nearly 30 years. He started his own herb school, the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine, in 1992; and is one of the Founders, Director of Holistic Medicine and a Clinical Herbalist at the Ithaca Free Clinic, a mixed modality free clinic now in its ninth year. 

 

In his own words, "I don't think of herbal medicine as 'magical.' Medicinally I think of plants as intricately complex chemically rich organisms that when taken interact with our bodies and physiology in various ways. As a herbalist, I see myself part of a very long continually evolving tradition of treating people using plants as a primary medicine."

Scything & Land Management Course

With Simon Fairlie

6pm Friday - 5pm Sunday  (Whole course)

  6pm - 8pm Friday AND 10am - 5pm Saturday (Beginner course only)

  10 am - 5pm Sunday (Advanced course only)

 

Whole course £135 per person includes supper on Friday and lunch on Saturday and Sunday

 

Beginner course £80 per person includes supper on Friday and lunch on Saturday

 

Advanced course £65 per person includes lunch on Sunday

 

From the course leader:

Beginners often imagine that a two day course is a bit excessive, just to learn how to use a garden tool; and that is true if all you want to do is knock down weeds. But anyone who wants to mow grass on any scale will benefit from a two day course, and people who do the course come away saying "I don't know how you could cram all that into one day".

 

Two days gives you enough time to practice different peening methods; I also spend more time on grass management, and demonstrate how to make and stack a hay rack, which enables you to make hay even in changeable weather.

 

Beginners may opt to come only on Friday evening and Saturday. Improvers who have done a beginner's course with me or someone else can opt to come only on the Sunday.

 

Friday Evening:

  • Brief history and sociology of the scythe

 

Saturday:

  • Selecting the right blade and snath for the job (or making best use of what you've got):
  • Setting up a scythe and snath;
  • Sharpening;
  • Basic mowing technique;
  • How to avoid damaging the blade, and how to repair chips and cracks;
  • Basic peening demonstration.

 

Sunday:

  • Early morning mowing
  • Managing grass with scything in mind;
  • Small-scale haymaking techniques
  • Peening practice with jig and bar peen anvil

 

TO BOOK please email Simon Fairlie on scythes@myphone.coop or ring 01297 561 359 (Monday morning is best). 

 

Scythe importer and grass management enthusiast Simon Fairlie heads Chapter 7 of The Land is Ours and The Land Magazine (among other things) from his stable block offices here at Monkton Wyld Court.
