Kids Herbal Sprouts Workshops

This class is geared for children ages 6 – 13 years old.

Every 2 weeks during the summer, come and learn about an herb. Each class will focus on one herb. We’ll discover the plant, talk about its many uses, make a craft and recipe, sing songs and tell stories about the herb. Bring a sack lunch and enjoy the day in a rural setting learning about how special herbs are!

Each child will receive a copy of Herbal Roots zine that corresponds with the herb we are teaching about, plus get to take home a completed recipe and craft and a seed or plant to grow.

Bring your own sack lunch. Drinks will be provided (homemade lemonade or ginger ale and/or water)

Class offering for 2015:
Dates TBD

From 10am – 2pm

Class fee: $30 per child (per class). Sign up for all 5 at the same time and receive a $30 discount. Discount will be refunded upon receipt of payment.
