Knowledge of your local plants and surroundings is empowering. Passing on this knowledge to your kids can be really fun and allows for a deeper love of our environment. Enjoy a Saturday  with your young one learning how to forage, make herbal medicines, create with the natural world and be with other families who share a passion for nature connection. This course is designed to inspire your children to see themselves as part of the earth, be stewards of the earth, know how to care for oneself and each other with plants from the wild and gardens. 


 

Cost: sliding scale $275-$575. Breakeven cost is $360. Paying more than the break even amount allows us to use a sliding scale and keep the program accessible. If payment is not possible please contact us about a scholarship.

About the facilitators of Herbal Wonders for Kids:

We are a group of four plant loving people: one herbalist, two school teachers and one yoga teacher. We love sharing the beauty and wisdom of nature with others in a supportive learning environment. Noelle, Holly and Caridad apprenticed  in herbalism and wild foods with Hannah and during that experience, we dreamed up this offering for kids. We are so excited to share it with you! Please contact us if you have any questions: sweetbirchherbals@gmail.com or 413-695-5968

Herbal Travel Kits

No matter how far you are from home, it's helpful to have an herbal kit you can reach for during those unanticipated occasions when your body calls for the support of plant allies. Learn what community herbalist Hannah Jacobson-Hardy packs in her travel kit to stay calm, grounded and healthy. Each item that Hannah will recommend is small enough to carry onto a plane and weighs very little for those backcountry explorers. From motion sickness, food poisoning, dry coughs, anxiety and headaches, Hannah will cover what she never leaves home without.
