WO Assistant checklist - Foraging for Mental Health

with Lynn Shore

In the workshop Foraging for Mental Health, Lynn Shore takes the participants on a mindful guided session to explore ways to engage with everyday nature in order to support their mental health. They will learn to know a few useful plant friends and their health effects in their immediate surroundings through using their senses, as well as techniques they can use to ground yourself with city nature. 

As a workshop assistant, your role is to make sure all the materials are there, order missing materials and help Lynn if needed. Don't hesitate to print this assistant checklist and have it with you on the day of workshop! 

Here is some information about ticketing when you are a workshop assistant.
