Alternative Expressions Youth Programming: DIY Herbalism





Save to:


Plants and the natural world carry gifts of healing, medicine, friendship, and so much more. Join this workshop to get hands-on with gardening and herbs at the UCSC Farm. Participants will gain knowledge on the medicinal properties of a few select herbs, and will get to make their own chapstick!

This is part 3 of 4 of the Lost Childhoods Alternative Expressions Intern workshops. These are 100% youth-led and youth-driven, and provide a safe space for youth in care to gather, connect, and learn from one another. Open to youth ages 13-25 who have been in foster care or a foster system related experience. Questions and RSVPs can be directed to Karen at!

*Gather at the MAH at 11am if you need a ride to the UCSC Farm. We’ll meet by the Front Street entrance. The workshop will begin at 11:30am on campus.
