Herbs for Children 101 w/ Kate Moxham
June 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
At The Alchemist’s Kitchen in Stockton Market
In this workshop we will discuss several herbs that are great for children, their herbal actions, medicinal preparations, and how to grow them in your own garden.
Medicinal herbs work in harmony with the human body, and bring us back into a state of balance while strengthening our systems, and serve as great teachers to us all. They are especially effective for children, whose tiny bodies can respond very quickly to even the gentlest herbs. While it is necessary to sometimes turn to western medicine for specific conditions, incorporating herbs into your family’s lives is an integral part of wellness. In addition, a lot of plants that are great for kids can be easily grown, and making your own medicine from them is very cost effective.
In this class, we will discuss several herbs that are great for children, their herbal actions, medicinal preparations, and how to grow them in your own garden. We will also go over common ailments, and how to effectively choose the best herbs for your kids. Individuals will take home several handouts, and be able to choose a packet of seeds to take home and plant.

My mission is to reconnect people with plants for optimum health and balance through herbal consultations, custom blends, and classes/workshops because plants and people are made for each other.
I am the founder of Cultivating Roots LLC, a small-scale herb farm and apothecary based out of Bucks County, PA and Titusville, NJ. Most recently, I formed an Herbalists Without Borders chapter in Mercer County, NJ because I believe health and wellness is our birthright, and everyone deserves equal access.
I have a Bachelor of Sciences degree in biology, and have spent the last several years working and studying with different herbalists. I finished the two-year clinical herbalist training program at David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies, where I am currently taking a Therapeutics program. In addition, I am working with Andrew Appello of Healthy Living Acupuncture in Princeton, NJ to become a registered herbalist of the American Herbalist Guild. I will always be a student, and will forever be in awe of the plants.
