CHILDREN’S HERB CLUB

The Children’s Herb Club is open from September to June on Wednesdays each week. Our Thursday program runs in April, May and June only. Each month of Herb Club runs as a four-week program; growing your children’s experience with herbs in a experiential and accumulative style. Using our five senses as a basis for herb learning, the children experience the magical world of plants from their own unique perspective.

We have a Herb Club Code of inclusiveness and respect for each other. We hold the space in a gentle and positive way to allow the children to thrive and feel supported in their learning process.

Clear expectations and boundaries are set for the children to ensure their experience is safe and nourishing.
