TEAS FROM THE GARDEN AT CASTLECRAG

GARDENING, TEACHING

At the beginning of each gardening class for Classes 1 & 2, Sandra Frain offers the children a cup of warming tea that is made from various herbs freshly picked from the gardens at Castlecrag campus. Leaves of thyme, sage, oregano, four types of mint, lavender and lemongrass make a delicious brew with hot water added to a large teapot. Herbs can help refresh, stimulate, soothe, protect and cleanse the human body. The children have planted, watered and harvested these herbs. They can all show you where these herbs grow and how you too can ‘brew your own tea’. Sandra also helps the Kindy children choose their herbs for fresh herbal tea. Ahh… now we are ready to garden!
