About Us

In addition to the visit to the exhibitions of the castle, the group of children carries out with a mediator a workshop around the realization of perfumed infusions.

By observing and studying a few plants, students discover their hidden and sometimes surprising properties. They then make a mixture to create a natural "flavored potion".

The workshop takes place in 4 stages:
- The group discovers plants through observation, smell, touch...
- Children learn the virtues of some plants with useful properties (digestive, calming, anti-infectious, etc.)
- Through the discovery of traditional equipment and illustrations, participants learn about the steps from picking to drying
- Making a mixture for an infusion

The educational objectives:
- Discover plants in a sensory way.
- Encourage methodical observation, comparison...
- Initiate some notions of botany.
- Make a mixture of plants for infusions.
