Each session is practical and fun. They build self-confidence and provide a wealth of sensory experiences in a green, social setting. Herbology Club allows children to play in a thoughtful and creative way with nature. No experience is needed, just a willingness to be outdoors in a beautiful green space. Parents are welcome to stay for all or part of the sessions. They are encouraged to share some food and learn from their children’s green experiences. Lynn is English. Sessions are in English and/or Dutch (depending upon the children).


Session Format
We start each session with a simple yoga or mindfulness activity. Then we explore what has changed in the four herb gardens and work together on practical tasks and nature games. Often we make simple food and share this at the end of the session. All activities reflect the seasons and include:

  • Creating barefoot paths
  • Wildlife shelters
  • Kokedame – hanging herbs
  • Willow weaving
  • Growing and using herbs
  • Fairy gardens
  • Making simple, safe wild food
