MEET THE PLANTS OF IBIZA
Workshops and courses introducing you to the medicinal plants growing in Ibiza
Our aim is to connect you to the medicine and the nutrition of the plants growing on the island. At Camino Verde we run courses and workshops to help you identify medicinal and edible plants, and learn how to use them to make simple home remedies for healing your self and your family. Through this learning, we reconnect to the ancestral knowledge of our local plants that we all once carried. We reconnect to ourselves. We reconnect to the land.
This is the path of folk herbalism – getting to know the plants growing around us, developing a relationship with them, and learning their effects through our own direct experience. As we go deeper, the plants can become our friends and teachers, and guide us on our soul's path.
Our workshops are all about entering into relationship with the plants around us, enabling you to take the first steps on the green path of plants.
What we offer
Plant walks and foraging
Walks to discover the medicinal and edible plants of the island. The walks take place in various unspoilt natural parts of Ibiza where we spend time identifying different plants and learning how to use them. After the walk you will be sent a list of the plants we've found and their uses, so you can continue your journey with the plants with confidence.
'I really enjoyed the walk. I thought you had a great way of sharing your vast knowledge in bite-sized chunks. It was joyful to be part of it.'
This could be described as 'taking in the forest atmosphere'.Through simple exercises to open your senses you will be guided into a state of mindful presence. We will then walk gently through the forest, with one or two exercises to help us connect deeply with our surroundings. You will experience a profound connection to Nature and the energy of inland Ibiza.
