Children's Herb Workshop
A fun and engaging herb workshop for kids aged 6-12. Join us on the farm for an adventure into the world of plants; connecting with our magical, healing friends!
Here we will start with some basics. What is an herb? How can you use herbs? What are some different kinds of herbs? We will then go on to explore and get to know some much loved medicinals, both in the garden and growing wild, on our “6 senses plant walk”. For the remainder of the afternoon we will be working together as a group to make a delicious sun-tea and plant craft while also spending time drawing, journaling and reflecting with the plants!
“Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can't expect them to help protect and care for it.”
