Mint Madness (Youth Workshop) at Chesapeake Herb Gathering

  • Fox Haven Learning Center 3630 Poffenberger Road Jefferson, MD, 21755 United States (map)

Lamiaceae is a family of plants commonly known as the "Mint Family". 

In addition to mints such as peppermint and spearmint, this family also includes plants like lemon balm, hyssop, tulsi, catnip, lavender; and also many of our culinary herbs such as basil, rosemary, sage, oregano,  and thyme.

 We will discuss the similarities of some of these plants, have an organoleptic experience with them, and color/drawing for younger children, and activitiy sheets for the older ones!

There will also be an opportunity for story time about one of the plants in the mint family (if time allows).
