They Didn’t Know We Were Seeds – Family Wellness Retreat

September 25, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Moms, gather your family and retreat beneath the trees for a few hours of re-energizing and centering self-care activities.

Black Girls With Green Thumbs calls mothers from across the Philadelphia area to reflect on their resilience and commit to nurturing their spirit by connecting with the ultimate feminine energy: Mother Nature.

On Sunday, September 25th we invite you and your children to immerse yourself in nature for the second annual They Didn’t Know We Were Seeds: Family Wellness Retreat. At the retreat you and your family will:

  • claim your right to rest
  • be free to let go
  • break the routine of daily life
  • nurture curiosity

Together with other women and their children, mothers will enjoy a beautiful day of restoration and exploration in the woodlands of Philadelphia. During this wellness retreat, families will engage in activities together and apart like, yoga for mom, a nature hike for children, and painting for all!

Black Girls With Green Thumbs will gather some of our favorite Black women wellness practitioners and creatives to lead workshops and over lunch we will hear from a keynote speaker.

The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education is will even lead nature activities for the children.

They Didn’t Know We Were Seeds is open to mothers, children of all ages (best suited for School Age), expectant mothers, grandmothers, and other female guardians or caretakers.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please bring reusable water bottles.
