Description

Ethnobotany is not just the study of trees and plants but it is also how we interact with them and how we have connected with them and utilised them from the beginning of time. So whether you are interested in learning about tree & plant identification or the vast amount of different ways we can utilise them in everyday life, then this is the course for you. On this two day course we will explore everything on a deeper level and have the chance to cover more species, as well as look at more ways of utilising and reconnecting with the natural environment. We will look at ecology, herbal medicine, foraging for food, uses of different woods, natural materials for fire lighting, making cordage, herbal teas and much more! Tutor: Ryan Knight Fox Ryan is an experienced tutor, having been running his own woodland business ‘Knight-Fox Wild About Learning’ since 2017. He is an Ecologist, Ethnobotanist, Bushcraft Instructor, Social Forester, Forest School Leader and Coastal School Leader.
