This is the best time of the year. Everything is green, the plants have their own biological clock and it runs fast. Everything is in a hurry to grow, blossom, produce before the heat comes in June. By July, it’s different shades of browns and gold.
Every 2 weeks things change so it is possible to come over and over with a slightly different date and see things that were not ready to show - and a show it is!
You’ll be amazed at the amount of flora this little island has to offer.
We start at 12 am from Naturally Kalymnos store just 50 meters from the taxi station in downtown Pothia. Up the stairs to the classroom/meeting area where we will have a brief introduction to the day that lies ahead. We’ll watch a short slideshow of times before and times ahead to see what you will not today.
You’ll be given your collection bag, pruning snips and away we’ll go to various areas of the island to learn about how to selectively, responsibly and ethically prune, harvest and collect the different herbs and medicines that are ready today. So let us get into our vehicle and we’ll take you on an herbal adventure!
We will visit several areas throughout the day, resting here and there. If we have time we will visit some of the ancient areas of the island, and actually where life in Kalymnos started way back when.
You will have an opportunity to learn how to wildcraft herbs responsibly and ethically, so that next time you visit them they will be fuller with more to offer. A truly unique experience you will always cherish!
We finish our time outside with a picnic (our treat) with local foods and ingredients made by nature and Kalliope!
Now it is time to head back to Naturally Kalymnos. There you will have an opportunity to shop privately and see the products produced from the flora that is Kalymnos.
For a more in depth event, you might like to look into our herbal workshops. They are 2-day events and offered from February until April.
