Learn backyard herbs, botanical drawing, materia medica research, recipes, crafts, and more in this herbal studies curriculum adaptable for all age groups.
I am a practicing home herbalist and have utilized these activities in my own home and community herbal cooperative (ages preschool through adult) that I started in 2014 ago to encourage group study for my children. This packet contains many of the crafts we've enjoyed together and activities that are well-received by young preschoolers to the parents that join in the fun.
This packet is a printable guide with activities sheets that follow a suggest 5-unit study that can be scheduled over 5 weeks or 5 months, depending on the time-frame you have available each week. Plus, many more opportunities for further study with blank templates and other suggested activities like herbal lore, poem studies, documentary research, and in-depth learning for beginner herbalists.
This packet is excellent for homeschool use, cooperatives, and multi-subject learning in any school environment including hands-on activities for thorough understanding of herbal uses, wildcrafting and plant identification, research, literature, copywork, history, math, cooking, baking, crating, and so much more.
You'll learn to gather herbs (as well as researching and documenting like a traditional botanist), make tea, make soothing salves, and other fun activities great for fundraising, gifts, and personal enjoyment.
