The Young Herbalist:
An Experiential Workshop for Children

The Young herbalist

Experience the wonderful world of herbs at this Young Herbalist workshop specially designed for children ages 5-7 years old. Little learners will gain confidence in identifying local and Mediterranean herbs from our garden. Enjoy and engage in fun activities where you will make herb salts, work with dried herbs and make your own infused water while picking up some gardening skills.

Beyond gardening, children will explore creative writing, guided storytelling and spoken word activities that will inspire connections between the literary arts and the natural world.

Set within an emerging urban farm we encourage hands-on learning to provide children with a richer experience. Discover the role herbs play in everyday life through a guided walk and story-based activities.

Take-home materials and garden-inspired goodies worth SGD28.00:

  • A bottle of Asian inspired herb salts made by your child
  • A bouquet garni made by your child
  • Freshly harvested soil-grown chemical-free herbs
  • A herb seedling for your herb garden
  • A garden journal
