The Dendrophile meaning nature or tree lover is a Plants & Trees Workshop focusing on - Identification, folklore and Uses. This two day workshop is a in-depth look at native and naturalised species commonly found in our woodlands and meadows in the Sussex High Weald.

We'll cover key Id features, ethnobotanical uses, botanical names and also the folk history of how our ancestors used our founa and flora to aid thier lives in the form of medicine, wild food & foraging, bushcraft, dyes, clothing and more. We'll Also cover the most dangerous and poisenous groups and individual plants your likely to come across in our landscape. In the morning we'll discuss the best guides and books to aid you and discover some of the key day to day objects our ancestors relied on.

"I thoroughly loved the Dendrophile workshop weekend. The workshop was held at one of the most unspoilt and vibrant pieces of woodland I have been to in a long time. Being introduced to such a wide variety of trees and plants was a real pleasure under the expert and friendly tuition of Phil and Scott. I loved finding out about the variety of uses of plants that, up until now, I would have walked past without thinking about. The course was accessible, friendly and thoughtfully designed leaving me with a lot of plans for projects to do. I would recommend the course to anyone who would like to build on/ up their knowledge of plants and trees- to do so whilst having the opportunity to stay in the woodland was truly magic. Thank you!"
