Trossachs Wild Apothecary
Based in Aberfoyle, Trossachs Wild Apothecary offers foraging walks as well courses on wild kitchen medicine and medicine making. All ages are catered for, from a Little Alchemists Club to wild cocktail making classes.
FOOD AS MEDICINE
Rox offers walks and workshops on wild food, kitchen medicine, fermented foods, wild cocktails, herbal medicine and yoga.
She said: “I believe that food is medicine. I am a director with the social enterprise Hub G63 and am developing the medicinal garden at the market garden near Killearn. The aim is to create a community medicinal garden where people can volunteer and learn about herbal and food sovereignty, growing, harvesting and processing herbs and offering workshops in making medicines.”
Rox also runs a nutritional therapy clinic and a Little Alchemists Club for adults and families to learn about wild foods and herbs; and has plans to open a herbal medicine clinic in future.
Rox is involved in the running of the Scottish Wild Food Festival and is a member of Herbalists Without Borders and the Association of Foragers. She welcomes opportunities to collaborate with other businesses in Forth Valley with an interest in wild food and herbalism.
