harvest some elderberry branches to make a flute today! they are fun to make and quite easy. the trick is in learning to play them. be sure to ask mother elder for permission to harvest a branch and thank her…you can leave a little cornmeal at her base, or birdseed to feed the birds, sing her a song (how about the elderberry song?!) or prune back any honeysuckle or blackberry brambles that may be growing up her and choking her out.

now, come back home and make that flute!!

if you have some leftover branches, you can make a popgun. the directions are on the right hand side of this page.
