One Day Course

Register interest

Spend the day in horticulture paradise learning about herbalism and plant medicine at our one-day workshop.  

Explore the benefits of traditional natural remedies and herbs and how they support our health so you can add them to your everyday medicine cabinet. You will also explore herbs suitable to plant in your garden, window box and allotment to get the most out of your space and ensure you always have the right herbs to hand. You will also receive a goodie bag of seeds to get you started on your journey connecting back with nature and using its gifts to heal.   

During the day, you will go foraging for plants, being guided in the correct method of harvesting and storage. A tea tasting session will be followed by a tincture-making and oil-infusing session, which you will take home with you. You do not need to bring any materials, only yourself.

One Garden Brighton

The recent restoration of the walled garden has been managed by Plumpton College. One Garden Brighton is the home of the college’s horticultural centre of excellence, a space for training and education. The campus buildings are nestled within the walls itself and you will see students designing, planting and maintaining the grounds as a showcase for innovation.

One Garden Brighton is place for everyone, a garden made for people. We are a part of our local community; a place to connect, improve wellbeing and discover something new. We support local producers, people and nurture local networks focused on enriching all who visit.
