  • Select herbs from the garden by touch and smell to personalize your tea
  • Relax and renew with an herbal steam or foot soak
  • Make and take home a jewelweed salve to prevent poison ivy rash
  • And of course you're welcome to participate in any of the activities offered for children as well!

  • Tour the woods and garden to collect flowers for a bouquet for yourself or a loved one
  • Plant a seed to take home and nurture through its life cycle
