Wild herbs & medicinal plant knowledge

Our editorial team always tries to provide detailed and accurate information, but it is possible that events undergo changes that we are unable to update in real time. Exact details on dates, times and programmes can be obtained directly from the organiser.
With the arrival of spring nature awakens. Gardens and orchards of South Tyrol are beginning to grow countless species of plants and herbs, that for centuries farmers and locals have used in many fields – from natural remedies to most delicious dishes.

From May to September, guided tours and workshops on the topic of wild herbs & medicinal plant knowledge take place in Lana and the surrounding area. Herbs are important ingredients in regional cuisine and their natural power has been playing a major role again for some time now.

Wild herbs, blossoms, berries and roots are particularly diverse in the Lana area. They are used to make tasty dishes, teas, tinctures or ointments.
