Here is a sneak peak at a wonderful homespun addition to our Friday learning bank. I’m calling it a learning bank instead of a curriculum as it feels more abundant and ready than ‘curriculum’. I always have my eyes peeled as I go along my daily tasks, mining for gems to add to our bank, and this one was a strike of gold.
Written and hand-illustrated by fellow home-schooling, homesteading mother, Kristine Brown (aka Tansy) these monthly morsels are chock-full of fun and wisdom. Replete with facts, lore, projects, puzzles, recipes, and seasonal relevance, she has created the perfect activity booklet for kids (and grown ups!) who love plants and herbal healing. Our Jr. Naturalists will be using portions as a seamless supplement to botany/herb class.
Herbal roots is available (a new one each month) through Tansy’s etsy shop, LunaFarm Creations, and she updates us regularly through hr wonderful homestead blog, Dancing in a field of Tansy. Her formal website is Luna Herb Co. Feel free to order one for yourself or give as a gift to a friend!
