This month is all about Plantain! Kids (and adults too!) will have a great time learning about Plantain while doing puzzles, making crafts and herbal remedies.
Go back to the 1300’s in England to read about how one village was given the gift of Plantain; make window hangings and plant rubbings; make infusions poultices and oils using plantain as well as a sunburn relief remedy. These are just a few of the fun packed pages in my biggest issue yet!
