Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference

Once again I am the coordinator for the Kids Programming at the conference. I’ll be teaching kids only at this camp, offering up a variety of classes, activities and plant walks to give them a valuable learning experience while moms get to enjoy their own classes.
In addition, I’ll be doing a Tree Walk/Drawing Class for adults.

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 2014:
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.
