About The Event
Inviting kids 8 to 13 years of age to have some fun after school making chocolate elderberry syrup! Elderberries have long been used as an incredible cold and flu remedy along with other parts of the tree for fevers, congestion, sore throats, burns, and clearing the skin. We will learn about all the healing properties of this plant and it's history. Participants will leave the workshop with 4 oz of self made delicious nutrient rich syrup with a raw cocoa kick the whole family will love! Handouts will include the history of the plant, its' medicinal properties,and easy to make elderberry recipes. Students will learn about it through stories and games and complete a handout with what they learned to take home. We will do a short guided meditation opening and closing the circle to leave and begin with a centering practice. A fun, educational, and feel good experience! Cost is 30 dollars which includes all materials.
