The magic of herbs – Ilaria Camprincoli


Discover the magical powers of herbs in a journey that will take you through the movement of the Wheel of the Year.

Wild and cultivated herbs have always been food, medicine and ingredients for magic. In this journey through the eight festivals, we will learn to perceive the change outside and inside us as the seasons pass. We will look for the herbs linked to each moment of passage, with particular attention to medicinal and magical species. Scientific knowledge and ancient knowledge complement each other, offering us a complete experience. On the one hand, we make good use of identification tools, on the other we open ourselves up to listening to our senses. Curiosities and suggestions about possible uses will accompany the discovery of each herb. The wild and biodiverse environment of Buona Luna is ready to amaze you.

Each meeting can be attended individually.


Alone for a tailor-made course, as a couple for a relaxing and instructive walk, with a small group of friends or with the family for an afternoon in contact with nature. Children are welcome at any age. The experience is suitable for people with disabilities.
