Kids Workshops

These classes are for budding Herbalists and Home Learners who are excited about potion making and learning the lore of herbs, their medicine and magic!

 

The classes are for young people interested in using herbs as medicines, herbal medicine making, growing herbs, and harvesting herbs.

 

The classes will take place indoors and out; we'll be in the kitchen making things, and outside in the herb garden learning about what is growing there, picking it and learning how to use it and grow it.

The classes are two hours, and all take place at Black Bear Herbs in Cumberland.

 

The Kids Workshops are for young people aged 11yrs -14yrs.  These ages are not set in stone, so contact us if you are interested.  We aim to put together classes of similar age and interests.

These classes are perfect for Home Learners.  

The classes meet BC curriculum guidelines in all the core competencies of Communication, Thinking and Personal and Social. The participants will collaborate and engage in projects that involve all the following curricular subjects: Math, English, Science, Arts, Social Studies, Applied Technology, Career Education, and Physical and Health Education.

For more details about how the classes meet criteria in each of these subjects please don't hesitate to be in touch.

Planning Your Apothecary Garden - Fall workshop

 

This workshop is best taken after the Herbal First Aid class and Herbs for Animal Friends so that you know which herbs you would like to grow in your own garden for you and your family and your Animal Friends.  This is a Fall workshop so it is more of an art class than a gardening class -  We'll do lots of planning, designing and drawing/colouring 

to create the kind of garden you want.  And learning about seeds and planning which seeds to order early in the Spring for your garden.

Time: 10:30-12:30pm

Cost:$40/person

Location: Black Bear Herbs, Cumberland, Vancouver Island, BC
