Holt Wood Herbs

Holt Wood Herbs

At Holt Wood in North Devon, we are growing and harvesting medicinal trees and shrubs, in forest garden style. In 2005, we cleared a redundant conifer plantation and, using permaculture design, we replanted the site to create a vibrant and sustainable medicinal woodland. We are using these wonderful plants as key ingredients in our handmade natural health and body care range. Our aim is to learn more about how woodlands can be developed and managed to provide products for living well. We offer courses on growing, harvesting and using plants from the medicinal forest garden.
