Herban Adventures is back at Tiny Diner with more amazing classes to engage your children in healthy eating and gardening! Join us for a class exploring the magic of common herbs and plants you'll find growing in the Tiny Diner garden. Everyone will have the opportunity to engage with the various plants through a sensory experience of taste, touch and smell and learn about herbs through interactive games and songs. At the end of our time together, we'll share a garden sun tea & snack.
This class can be taken as individually or as a three part series. Other classes take place on Wednesday June 20th and 27th from 9-11am. Preregister and save!
