You don't want to miss this class! Learn how to make your own potent medicinal first aid salve and spray.  Students will participate in a demonstration on how to make whole plant infused oil using fresh and dried herbs from our farm.  Then using that oil, students will help make a batch of first aid salve. Students will also have the opportunity to make their own first aid spray using fresh and dried herbs from our farm. Each family will go home with own 2oz tin of first aid salve and 4oz of the first aid spray, as well as the recipe for the product we make during the class. 

This class is geared toward homeschool families or school aged children on break.  The content of the class is best suited for children 8+, however children of all ages are welcome to attend with siblings.  All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.

Individual adults without students interested in learning more about herbs, please check out our seasonal herb walks here.

Customer Review from our last Homeschool Series Class! 

Wild Aster Farms offers an experience that no text book on gardening or medicinal herbs could offer; to step out into nature with the delightful smells, sounds, and textures of the farm firmly establishes in your memory all that the proprietors teach. Their expertise and quiet enthusiasm for sharing their craft is not lost to even the youngest audience. Our visit to the farm left my children eager to learn more and to put into practice immediately what they were taught. And those weeds I was lamenting that I needed to take the time to pull at the height of allergen season, turns out they can help me medicinally with those very allergies, who knew?!! I don’t think I will see my own little plot of earth the same again. - Stephanie C.
