-------- What is Provided -------- This course includes a 65-page printable PDF course-book with all of the content covered during the course (see outline above) as well as fun activities to complete outside of class (cut and paste exercises, word searches, recipes, cooperative card game, printable plant ID sheets) and detailed monographs of the plants discussed during the course.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
**ATTENTION PARENTS! The information in this class is for educational purposes only. The instructor of this course disclaims any liability in connection with the use of this information. While all of the plants we are covering in this course are considered mild and safe for children, ingesting wild plants is inherently risky. Plants can easily be mistaken and every individual will vary in their physiological response to a plant that is touched or consumed. Please do not attempt self-treatment of a medical problem without consulting a qualified health practitioner.**
