Thursday 29th August
10.30 – 12.00
Meeting at Buurtuin, Valentijnkade
Cost €10 per child* (parents free), includes an informative handout (in Nederlands & English), organic pizza ( for child and 1 parent), a packet of River of Herbs seedmix and the guided walk.
* for children from same family – 1st child €10, extra children €5 each.
This walk is for children and their parents.
We will meet at 10.30 on Valentijnkade, at the community and nature gardens on the corner of Flevopark (called Buurtuin) and will wander through a short woodland section of the park before returning to Valentijnkade. Then we will walk on to the wonderful children’s farm, adventure playground and kids construction village for pizza (at about 12.00) and then parent supervised play for as long as you wish.
The children (and parents) will learn how to:
Safely identify, harvest and make use of some easy to find herbs such as Dandelion, Plantain, Chickweed and Deadnettles.
Identify a few common non-toxic plant families and two poisonous plant families.
Create homes for helpful bugs and insects.
Make some useful herbal preparations and fun crafts from plants.
This fun and informative walk is aimed at 7-12 year olds but children outside of that range are very welcome, with a parent.
Each child will receive a useful colour handout to reinforce what they experience and learn on the walk.
I am a school teacher (at the British School of Amsterdam) and an educator of adults and children in the ways of safe urban foraging and plant identification. I run guided walks in different parks and city streets to help others understand and conserve the green life that surround us. Last year I launched the River of Herbs project in Amsterdam.
