Junior Herbalist Club
Suitable for children from ages 7 and over. Each month we will be learning about the medicinal uses of plants, stories, songs, growing, harvesting, and making something to take home - lavender bags, lip balms, bath bombs, lotions, potions and much more.
The aim of JHC is to let children learn about the healing and medicinal plants all around them in a safe and supervised environment and is proudly supported by the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.
The course includes:
Identification of common herbs growing all around us
Safety – which herbs are safe to use and which are poisonous
Folklore – taught through stories and songs
How to grow and harvest herbs
Medicinal uses of common herbs
How to use a variety of common herbs for first aid
How to make a variety of herbal preparations to keep and take home
Respect for all plants and their environment
All classes run by Sandra O'Neill who is a Medical Herbalist and NIMH registered JHC leader
Places are strictly limited and as this course is very popular, early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
