Spring Equinox Herbology Workshop for Kids

Join herbalist, Alie Sweany-Rich, of Wild Roots on March 26th 11am-2pm for a Children’s Herbal Medicine Workshop crafting with Springtime herbs!

In this Spring Plant Medicine workshop, children will learn about the medicinal and historical uses of a handful of Spring herbs.

Alie plans to host seasonal children’s herbal classes, with the intention of using herbs as a path to connect to the magic of nature and share ways to use plants to support our bodies in each season.

Children will also learn the importance of sustainable harvesting techniques and appropriate safety precautions that must be followed to assure we are using plants that are safe for consumption and the importance of checking in with a knowledgeable adult before consuming any wild plants.

We will be using appropriate children/teen’s dosage guidelines for herbs and will only use herbs that have been extensively researched and considered to be safe for children. Information about each herb used in class will be sent home with the child so they can share what they learned with family & friends.

Class is aimed for children aged 5-14. Please pack a water bottle & lunch for your kid to enjoy while crafting.
