Autumn Harvest for Winter Wellness

Facilitator: Daphne Lambert

As the landscape changes to fiery reds and bronze and nature contracts and moves its essence inward, there is still time to gather the last gifts of autumn and preserve them in ways that will support us through the darker months of rest.

During this course we will look at the fruits, roots and seeds of autumn and how we can harness their healing powers to support and nurture us during the slower, stiller, colder months of winter.

Event time: Wed 14th Oct 2020 at 6:30pm - Wed 28th Oct 2020 at 8:00pm

Daphne will give an overview of the immune system to prepare the ground for her nutritional teaching. She will speak of how the nutrition changes between fruit, root and seed, exploring phyto-nutrients, essential fatty acids, and vitality stored in the roots. We will bring the autumn harvest into the kitchen, and explore ways of preserving them to enhance our gut health and immunity.
