The course is run by myself, Simone Melanie, and I am passionate about plants. I studied Environmental Science (plant ecology) at university 20 years ago and since then I have been working with plants and people in various settings including drug and alcohol treatment centres and being a head gardener. In 2013 I started Solar Ripe selling Organic Medicinal Herbs, growing a herb garden in Fife and running workshops. My learning of herbalism has come from studying with various herbalists including Maureen Robertson, Keith Robertson, Fiona Morris and the Seed SistAs, and a lot of self study and trial and error! I prefer to use native plants that we can find growing all around us such as Elder, Plantain and Blackberry and use organic, recycled, and local as much as is possible (so expect so see an old jam jar here and there)!
