Collaborations

If you want to bring a larger group, our workshops, herb walks and herbal parties can be run by two practitioners/facilitators. I regularly work with Lucinda Warner and Anna Richardson and can link up with any of the talented instructors who regularly run Workshops at Wowo in order to meet the needs of your event.

Residential options

Why not extend your stay and fully immerse yourself in nature? Overnight camping or glamping (in a yurt, shepherd’s hut or bell tent) residential workshops can be arranged with enough advanced notice. In collaboration with Wowo Campsite in East Sussex.
