Circe’s Magic: A Family Exploration of Plants (with a Craft and Tea!)
Wednesday March 13, 2024 from 2-3:30 pm
Location: The Watershed Institute, 31 Titus Mill Rd, Pennington, NJ 08534
Recommended for ages 6+. HVRSD has a 1/2 day.
Join us for a family-friendly exploration of the magic of plants! We will start with a winter wildflower walk to identify common native plants and learn their medicinal (magical) properties. Then, we will set our intentions and make herbal dream pillows. We will conclude by communally brewing a magical, color-changing cup of tea!
This program is in collaboration with The Watershed Institute and has both indoor and outdoor components. Please dress for the weather.
This event is part of the 2024 NEA Big Read – an initiative designed to broaden our imaginations and understanding of our world, our neighbors, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. The featured book Circe by Madeline Miller retells a Greek story from the eponymous heroine’s point of view, giving voice to a lesser goddess Homer’s The Odyssey. We have curated a list of age-appropriate companion titles for our community’s young readers that explore traditional stories from cultures around the globe, ranging from the Greek mythology of Circe to Vietnamese legends. Please visit PenningtonLibrary.org/2024BigRead for a full calendar of events and more information.
NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
