Wild alchemy masterclass with Mama Xanadu: Cotswolds
9th October 2019
Celebrate the harvest season in this wild alchemy masterclass with Mama Xanadu, held in the Chelsea Garden Room on our Cotswolds farm. In this guided workshop you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with our ancestry of foraging for food and medicine, and living according to the seasons. After a guided meditation to awaken the senses, led by Mama Xanadu founder Jemma Foster, you’ll enjoy tastings of wild edible produce whilst exploring plants and plant communication.
In the second half of the session you’ll head out onto the wild woodland of our farm on a foraging walk, where you’ll delve into the rich mythology and folklore surrounding the natural world whilst enjoying samples of treats made from the plants you are discovering on the ground. The class will finish with a reflection on your finds and you’ll receive a wild alchemy goody bag, including a Wild Alchemy booklet with recipes, wild teas and samples for you to continue your learning at home.
