The second edition* of the popular board game, Wildcraft! is a great introduction to the world of edible and medicinal herbs for children of ALL ages. It’s a beautifully illustrated, nature based, cooperative game created in the tradition of the classic board games.
Wildcraft! teaches you 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 and good fortune to make it to the Huckleberry Patch and safely back to Grandma’s.
Wildcraft! is printed and made in the USA. Plants referred to are endemic to the northern hemisphere, but most appear in Australian gardens as useful medicinal herbs and weeds.
Plants include: Burdock, Calendula, Chamomile, Chickweed, Comfrey, Cottonwood, Dandelion, Echinacea, Elder, Field Mint, Herb Robert, Huckleberry, Jewelweed, Lemon Balm, Marshmallow, Wild Mustard, Nettle, Oregon Grape, Pine, Plantain, Wild Rose, St. John’s Wort, Valerian, Violet, White Willow, Yarrow, Yellow Dock
