Teaching Children About Herbs
“We must take our children into the wild, introduce them to the plants, and teach them of their connection to the earth. In instilling ino our children a respect for plant medicine, we not only care for their tender bodies but help pass along the seeds of a tradition that is as old as human life itself.” – Rosemary Gladstar
If you are looking for a herbal course that is easy to understand and has the ability to teach children about herbs, look no further! Herbal Roots Zine is designed to raise the interest level of children and adults through hands-on learning and repetition. Homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers alike have found Herbal Roots Zine a valuable learning resource for a subject that does not have many opportunities available for children: herbal healing.

I’m a practicing herbalist and homeschooling mother of 4 children and 2 step-children. I have studied with Rosemary Gladstar of Sage Mountain and have spent countless hours of research and study through my own pursuit with great herbalists such as Kiva Rose, Jim McDonald, Matthew Wood, Paul Bergner, Susun Weed, Gail Faith Edwards, Doc Garcia, Kathleen Maier and more. I offer an herbal product line through my local farmer’s market and online, do consultations, teach medicine making classes to adults, offer herbal work shops for kids and run a monthly herbal study group, focusing mainly on locally found herbs, enabling the community to take control of growing and wild crafting their own medicine. Teaching others about herbs is my focus with a passion on sharing my knowledge with children as they ARE our future!
