This new club aims to familiarize kids with the healing herbs in their own backyard through the entertaining Herb Fairies curriculum and lots of hands on interactions with herbs and plants. Practically, the children will learn how to identify some common herbs, how to harvest them sustainably and mindfully, and learn which ones are safe to eat. Creatively, they will make recipes, learn about the plant’s folklore and usefulness, create art, act out stories, celebrate the seasons, and get to create healing salves, balms, teas, snacks and more!
Once upon a time, children would have learned about the many uses of plants - as food, as decoration, and most importantly, as medicine - from their elders. These guides, who had learned the ways of the plants from their elders, would have guided children as they discovered the natural world around them. Our world is very different now, and children are better at identifying commercial logos than plants, but plants still have so much to teach us! This club will introduce children to the beauty and power of the herbs and plants that still grow all around us - from rural fields or suburban yards to city parks and empty lots.
