Monday-Friday, 9 am - 3 pm

The plants explored in Enchanted Summer are all child-friendly: garden herbs like lavender, lemon balm, mint, rosemary, sage, thyme, chives, and others; and kitchen spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, turmeric, cardamom, and more. Foraging is limited to easily identifiable and food-like plants such as dandelion, purple clover, violet, red raspberry, wild blueberry, white pine, and nettles. No child will be asked to ingest anything they do not want to, as there are plenty of other ways to explore and learn.
