Suggested Donation: 10 Euros (no one turned away for lack of funds)

Meet your Green Neighbors!

On these Rambles you will learn to identify the wild plants growing all around us and how we can use many of them as food and medicine. We’ll discover different edible and medicinal plants found all around Dublin, discussing basic botany, harvesting considerations, and medicine making techniques.

These Rambles are a HerbShare Dublin Workshop in support of the Dublin Herb Bike. We strive for a model of healthcare that is based on solidarity and not charity. Our web of programming aims to build skills, share knowledge and costs, all while providing vibrant healthcare in our community.

Registration is based on sliding scale donations to keep these workshops as open as possible to all members of the community. Donations collected on the day with all monies going to keep the Herb Bike rolling! No one is turned away for lack of funds. Thank you for your support and for helping us build community through herbalism!

* Please note, these rambles are weather-dependent.

Solidarity Medicine Making

Combine learning with service at our Solidarity Medicine Making workshops! Discover the satisfying and empowering experience of creating plant medicine to share with the people and communities who need it most.  In these hand-on workshops, we make large batches of  herbal preparations while focusing on teaching a wide array of medicine making skills.  Participants learn new skills and the greater community benefits as well by receiving batches of sweet, sweet herbal medicine. 

The medicines we craft are donated to the Dublin Herb Bike or gifted to communities in the form of care packages and HerbCare Stations.  Over the years through these workshops we have also supported direct actions such as the Apollo House Occupation.  

Registration is based on a sliding scale donation to keep these workshops as open as possible to all members of the community. Donations collected on the day.
