Children's Discovery Series: The Healing Power of Plants

We are excited to offer four sessions for children, aged 6-12, in our Children's Discovery Series.


Session 3: The Healing Power of Plants

Explore the healing powers of nature: trees, flowers, and plants! Be prepared, you might be asked to hug a tree! Children will be encouraged to experience the vibrational energy of the flowers that grow on Horn Farm in a variety of colors and shapes! A role-playing-game will illustrate how this energy affects us and how we can share it with one another as we interact! We will also explore the healing nature of herbs, learn how to make an instant plantain poultice for stings and bites, and even create an herbal salve. We take care to harvest all herbs in a way that is life-sustaining to the plant and children leave with the understanding that we can use these natural resources without depleting them.


Nature experiences provide many benefits including increased self-esteem; resilience against stress and adversity; and improved concentration, learning, creativity, cognitive development, cooperation, flexibility, and self-awareness. Through positive experiences outdoors, children will develop their love of nature and a foundation for the development of responsible environmental behavior. Hands on experience with a bit of freedom for creative exploration engages and inspires children to cultivate a sense of wonder and connection. We will be learning about the web of life and our part in it, engaging in some fun nature-oriented mindfulness games, playing in the dirt, getting silly, and leaving no trace in the process!
