Among the activities the kids did who attended our first annual Hogwarts’ Summer Camp was a course in Herbology. All four houses made an echinacea tincture using plants from our garden, apple cider vinegar and mason jars. It’s “cooking” as we speak.
They also learned about medicinal “magical” uses of many of the herbs, flowers, and “weeds” in the garden. They made a salve from plantain leaves and calendula flowers using olive oil and beeswax.
Huge success overall. From the first day on, the kids were planning the second annual camp!
