Secrets of the Bach remedy plants

Thursday 21st July 2016 at The Bach Centre

E2CTrainer: Gwenda Kyd BFRP

Dr Bach's 38 remedies are made using 36 different plants - but what else do we know about these plants? Some of them provide foods, some medicines, dyes and sources of materials for building and making textiles.

This one-day workshop will take a closer look at the plants Dr Bach chose and in particular at some of their "non-Bach" uses, both traditional and modern. Students will also explore some of the folklore and botany associated with these plants and the challenges to survival a few of them face.

Weather permitting, we will spend time in the garden at Mount Vernon, exploring the plants as they grow and sharing our observations.

The workshop is open to all, and costs £78.



Gwenda Kyd BFRP currently works as a practitioner in Cambridge. She is the author of Molecules, Medicines and Mischief – A Year on the Chemical Trail around Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
