Woodford Folk Festival 2011/12

Guess what I’m doing over the festive season? Going to Woodford! Even better – quite apart from diving headlong into the food, music, crowds and workshops – I’ll be doing a few talks while there.

I’ll be teaming up with acupuncturist extraordinaire Sarah George for a double-act in the festival’s health programme. Sarah and I will be talking about easy household remedies for common conditions such as nausea, fatigue and pain.  I’ll be sharing herbal and nutritional tips, while Sarah will be teaching some simple acupressure techniques. Come along if you’re interested in learning more about what we do.

We will also take part in the Woodforum: Raw Food panel discussion;  and I’ll be running a hands on herbal preparation workshop for kids (in the children’s festival). Juicy! Can’t wait!
