Harvest to bottle Workshops
Bookings for Saturday 31 October close this Saturday 25 October - filling fast.
One day workshop 10am – 4:30pm designed for those who are interested in understanding the whole process from growing your own plants through harvesting, packing the still, distilling and cleaning your equipment. We will discuss packaging and storing of products. You will be provided with information on different types of stills, how and where you might acquire one, and regulations involved. The intention is that you could start experimenting on your own.
This is hands-on, learning by doing. We will be working together as a group of four.
You will need to bring your own secateurs and gloves.
Some bending is required for harvesting the rosemary but no heavy lifting or other extreme physical requirements.
You will take home:
Basic notes with references I am available for follow up questions as they arise.
100ml of hydrosol.
Workshops are limited to 3 people.
