lavender bag

Junior Herbalist Club @ Lytham Park View

Starts Saturday 9th September 10.00am to 11.30am. Suitable for children aged 8 upwards or from 7 if parent stays. 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 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. This will include:

  • Identification of common herbs growing all around them
  • 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
