About Course

Are you wanting to teach your kids about herbs but don’t quite know where to start?

Have you purchased a few issues of Herbal Roots zine but wondering how to apply them in a consistent manner to encourage your children to dive in deep and really get to know an herb?

Are you new to herbs yourself and need some guidance for both yourself and your child?

Do you find it hard to consistently learn about herbs in a daily practice?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the course for you! Over the next 30 days, you will be guided in easy, short, daily lessons that will have you and your kids becoming herbal experts in no time at all!

This course is designed to help you and your children build on the knowledge over the course of a month to get a deep understanding of the uses and characteristics of an herb through medicine making, plant observation, crafts, botany, and research.

And best of all?

IT’S FREE!!

That’s right, this 30 day course, which is filled with 30 daily lessons, including videos, printables, and written guides, is completely free.

My only request is that you purchase a copy of Herbal Roots zine to use throughout the month (though it’s not required). There are over 130 issues to choose from, or you can make it easy and use the Plantain issue, which this 30 day course is based on. Each issue is only $7.99 so it’s quite affordable to get the most out of 30 days of learning!

If you decide to learn about something other than Plantain, I highly suggest picking a plant that grows abundantly in your back yard or somewhere close by that you have easy access to.

About the instructor

KB
I love teaching herbalism and botanical drawing and I'm excited to bring the two loves to the online teaching world. I am the creator, author, and illustrator of the popular online kid's ebook series, Herbal Roots zine, which teaches children about the medicinal uses of herbs through fun activities like games, puzzles, songs, stories, and recipes. I began this ebook back in 2009 when I was looking for resources to teach my youngest two children, which I was homeschooling, when I realized there wasn't much available for teaching kids about herbs.   I am a registered herbalist with the American Herbalists Guild and inaddition to writing the monthly ezine, I teach classes in my community as well as all over the United States to both adults and children. I have created and run kid camps at herbal conferences around the country as well and have run a kid's camps out of my home during the summer. I also see clients out of my home office.   Now that I'm not homeschooling my youngest two (which are now in 10th and 11th grade) I am usually drawing plants or walking my dog Lulu in the woods while taking photos of the plants that are growing there in my free time.   Teaching others about herbs is my focus with a passion on sharing my knowledge with children as they ARE our future!
