Join our gardener Gundula to learn more about herbal teas and other refreshing drinks made from fresh herbs and seasonal flowers.

The day will start with gathering herbs from the garden while snippets of wisdom are shared. Constance demonstrates how to make her grandmother’s immune-boosting tea while Gundula concocts tantalising teas and tisanes to suit any taste, at any time and to ease a range of ailments.

After lunch, we get practical with demonstrations on how to make insecticidal teas for use in the garden. Gundula will also explain the benefits of using worm tea on your plants. Together we will make cuttings of some essential herbs which you can grow at home. At the end of the day, a toast of kombucha will give you the energy to sprint back home, endorsed with the knowledge and culture to make your own effervescent health drinks.

Indulge in a refreshing lunch in our Healing Garden – included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.
