  • 21 Ways to wellbeing – Toni Christie

Participants will share ideas for wellbeing through practical strategies. Be prepared to play some games, share ideas, and have some fun!

  • Guided meditation – Memory Lyon
  • Herbal magic for all ages – Lynn Kirkland

Connecting with nature is the goal of Herb World and in this interactive workshop you will discover the amazing properties of five herbs which can be easily grown in your centre.

Learn how to create a Herb World spiral garden and grow the characters from the Herb World books.

Make friends with Little Miss Calendula, Sir Thyme, Nurse Lavender, Professor Rosemary and the rapping cool guy, Allie Aloe.

They take care of the gnomes, elves, and fairies who live in Herb World and they can care for you and the little ones in your care.

Lynn’s passion for herbs spans over thirty years and being a teacher and herbalist make her well qualified to share this knowledge through the enchanting and fun text and captivating illustrations of these children’s herb books.

  • Inspirational not Institutional! – Robin Christie

Children are miracles. We can choose to create environments for miracles not minimums. (Anita Rui Olds).

Cost: $180 per person, includes morning tea and a light lunch.
