The Sensory Academy

Evolutionary Grassroots Living

The Sensory Academy is a place to explore the world of plants, the depths of our inner and outer nature, our curious senses, the knowledge of our ancestors and the cycles of the year.


Evolutionary grassroots living is about inspiring us to re-connect with our surroundings, using our sensors to guide us, learning the art of traditional herbalism and food preparation, the relationship between us and the natural world, ancestral knowledge and how the cycles of the year impact us.


Together We Evolve, Together We Grow




Delving deep into the times of the year as we experiencing them. Our aim is to support you on your plant path journeys and allow you space to become intimate with the plants as well as giving you the knowledge to use them in numerous different ways. We will explore the theory, mythology and practicality of using plants in all their beauty. We would like to inspire you to go out in your local area, in the parks, along the river, in the forest, out on the field, in your back yard or at your local farmers market, and with open senses see, feel, smell, hear and taste the quality of the Natural World all around you.


We would like to explore the plant world with you during these times of the year. As the year progresses dates will be set and the types of the workshop which we will hold.
