Children's Herbalism Workshops
Calling all children between the ages 8-15 years!
This is an exciting opportunity to learn all about foraging in the UK for an array of wonderful medicinal plants that can heal, nourish and support our bodily functions.
Aimed at beginners, these workshops will sow the seeds and encourage young inquisitive minds to consider our environment and the incredible provision of everyday medicine at our fingertips.
These workshops are 2 and a half hours long, and will cover plant identification, foraging rules and safety, plant history, tea tasting and storytelling, along with a fabulous lesson in making their own creations of child friendly ointments, creams, oils, syrups and more to take home!
Building autonomy, confidence, understanding and a deep respect for nature, this is a unique and fun day spent in woodland with like minded children.
Your child will benefit from the expertise of an experienced and trained tutor, Elise Tatman.
A lifelong outdoor enthusiast, Elise grew up with woodland surroundings, with childhood memories of climbing trees, creating bug hotels and building dens. This gave her a solid foundation and deep affinity with nature, all creatures great and small, and a belief that we are part of nature and stewards of our beautiful Earth.
Elise has a herbalism qualification with Heartwood College, and is a trained forest school teacher, working in many forest schools across East and West Sussex. She also works at a local Primary school teaching herbalism and cookery. Elise has a passion for plant healing, nutrition, and wellbeing and wishes to inspire and pass her knowledge and tools on to future generations.
Sowing the seeds of change, in our hearts, minds and souls.
