Children and young adults Workshops
We are firm believers of learning by practice. Whether it means to learn to work with nature by practicing working with nature or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. The dedication of physical or intellectual acts, from which comes achievement, gives a sense of one’s being, satisfies the spirit. The more we practice our interests, the more we yearn to become better, the more fulfilled we are as people. Children learn better by practice and we are here to make practice fun!
Cyherbia has developed a special educational program for schools in Greek, Russian and English, for children of different age groups from 5 till 18 years of age. Teachers accompany their students and go around the park on an educational scavenger hunt! This is a great opportunity to have everyone outside the classroom and learn something new by using all their senses and interact with nature.
Cyherbia Botanical Park and Labyrinth invites schools, scouts and youth groups for an educational and fun day out in nature where you interact with nature and discover the plants of Cyprus and their uses. We offer educational games for various age groups in all areas of the park: the herb gardens, maze and woodland. In the herb gardens you can discover the benefits of local herbs. In the maze you are challenged to find the hidden birds as well as the way out. The woodland, where hundreds of Cypress trees form the outline of the island, you can find the most important locations of cultural heritage as you walk around Cyprus. Students can bring their own snack and eat in the tea room, where they can taste our herbal tea as well.
Our educational game sheet will take you on a route around all areas of the park: the botanical gardens, the maze and the woodland.
- In the botanical gardens, you will learn more about the use of herbs, their names and what they look like.
- Scavenger hunt game all around the park.

Friends of the Environment
Children learn about how climate change can affect Cyprus, and what they can do to help save our environment. We teach about composting and how it enriches the soil and helps to sustain a clean, healthy garden. Together we set up a compost bin for them to bring back to the school, where it can be used every day. This encourages students to be more aware of managing their waste and to use the high quality compost soil to plant trees at school or at home!
