In this workshop, Angela Adler from SeedGeeks will lead a painting and planting workshop for children. Each child will receive a clay pot to paint and decorate, as well as their choice of SeedGeeks seeds to plant. The seed selection will include a range of heirloom, untreated, and open-pollinated seeds, including flowers such as lavender, chamomile, and sunflower, herbs such as chives, basil, and dill, and vegetables such as tomato, rainbow swiss chard, and cucumber.
Join us for a festive holiday cookie decorating party for children and the young at heart in the PALM Café! This workshop is a perfect way to get in the holiday spirit and enjoy a cozy afternoon with the family. Cookies and light refreshments will be provided.
This workshop will explore themes related to effective communication between parents and their children. Kevin Cloninger will discuss why talking with a child or teen can be so difficult, due to a host of different developmental factors. For example, we will look at how brain development in childhood and adolescence influences listening, speech, and perception, and how parents can take this into account in order to communicate effectively with their children. Afterwards, we will discuss some practical strategies to help improve empathy and communication. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided. $25 for members and non-members. Register through our class schedule on the PALM app. Non-members may call 314-801-8898 option 2 to sign up. Proceeds from the workshop will go to support Anthropedia’s work in the community.
