This comprehensive workshop is designed to offer a template on how to view a growing child in relation to using herbal medicine for their wellness. Useful information for the herbal medicine practitioner as well as the herbal medicine enthusiast. 

Understanding how to administer herbal medicine to children, to teach and guide children to make connections with herbs and develop allies and relationships with the plants is key to encouraging respect for the natural world and holistic health and herbalism in general.
