I just heard about an amazing deal from LearningHerbs.com that I had to share with you...
Today more than ever we (adults and children alike) seem to lack a connection with nature. As a society, we spend more time in front of a computer, on a cell phone, playing video games, and watching TV than we do taking hikes, spending a day at the beach, gardening, or just playing outside. Something that I have learned in my own experience working with herbs is that it's one thing to read about and learn some facts about plants; it's something else entirely to work with them, get to know them, and build relationships with them. Our own health, all the way up to our food supply depends on a deep human connection with nature.
John Gallagher and his wife Kimberly of LearningHerbs.com designed a board game called Wildcraft! for children with the intent to help kids connect with the natural world. The game is designed for kids to learn, develop an interest in plants, and be inspired to become actively involved in nature itself. Wildcraft! teaches 25 important edible and medicinal plants and their uses in mostly first aid situations. (Wildcrafting is the harvesting of wild plants.) It also teaches team work, for you will rely on each other’s knowledge of plants.
They are offering this game for 50% off with TONS of free extras included (but this offer won't last long: it ends June 9, 2011 at midnight).
