3rd-8th graders are invited to experience the magic of healing herbs on the farm. Students will learn to grow, harvest and process plants for medicine. Participants will study and create remedies to support the nervous system, immune system, integumentary system, and respiratory system. Each student will make an herbal first aid kit to take home at the end of the course. This course is appropriate for students who are new to herbalism and for those who have already taken Backyard Herbalism in the fall.
