      Did you know that some of the most common weeds in your yard make great medicine? Campers get to explore cultivated and wild plants growing at Casey Farm, and learn which plants to harvest and how to make them into old-time remedies. The day includes harvesting and medicine-making techniques. Campers brew herbal teas and steep an herbal vinegar, and create nature journals and use them to record plant observations. Stories and herbal crafts such as nature bracelets, herb sachets, and flower prints, round out the day for your budding herbalist.

      Part of the Casey Farm Summer Fun Days series.

      Refund policy: No cash refunds. Camp credits will be given with two weeks’ notice.
