What's This Curriculum Kit All About?

This curriculum kit is designed to introduce children to the magical world of kid-friendly herbs and nourish their inquisitive curiosity for nature by immersing them in a wide variety of hands-on activities that involves all their senses!

The Initial Kit

This initial kit includes TWO curriculums in one: "The Introduction to Herbalism Chapter" covers all the need to know info on what herbalism is, what they can do with herbs, safety considerations, giving thanks to our herbal friends, and more! The "Meet Your Herbal Ally" Chapter is the first installment in our "Getting to Know Your Herbal Allies" series for kids. In this chapter, they'll begin applying the concepts they learned in the previous chapter as they work closely with their first "Herbal Ally." They'll be learning all about it, tasting it, making a glycerin extract from it, and starting their very own herb garden with its seeds! Subsequent kits are available, and you can save more by becoming a subscribing member!

A Note to Parents & Teachers

Parents and teachers receive instructional materials to help them guide their children through the curriculum. Instructors do not have to have any previous herbalism experience... All they have to do is follow along with the presentation slides & worksheets and play the videos! Everything is provided for you and your child...including a tea sample, the supplies for making a natural home remedy, and a seed kit to start the herb garden!

What's Included?

With our courses, your Little Sprout won't JUST be gaining HERBAL WISDOM...

Happy Kids, Happy Customer

Homeschool Director

As a homeschool cooperative, we schedule classes for our children in outdoor settings to get them into nature and connect with the environment around them. We asked Tiffany if she would be willing to teach an herbalism class once a week to our students. She gladly accepted, and her "Little Sprout's Budding Herbalist: Homeschool Curriculum" has been providing excellent education on medicinal plants such as Lemon Balm and Peppermint. We've made tinctures and balms, and the kids really enjoy the hands-on experience. We are so happy that she is able to share her expertise with the younger generations.

My kids love Miss Tiff! There's always something new going on, and we've learned so much! We've been discovering new plant remedies we can use when we don't feel well, instead of running to the drug store. Our home apothecary has been growing weekly! It's a great feeling to know that my kids are growing up attaining this knowledge and that they're going to be more self-sufficient.

About the Instructor

Tiffany Davies, B.Sc., Professional Herbalist

Hi! I'm Tiffany Davies! I've been studying herbal medicine for 27 years. It's been a passion and calling that has followed me since I was 14 years old! Perhaps it's because of my Cherokee ancestors, but I have always been drawn to the magical world of plants and love sharing its amazing gifts and powerful healing abilities with others! I hold degrees in Cellular & Molecular Biology & Health Science. I have also studied with 6 herbal "elder" mentors, many of which are co-founders or affiliates with the American Herbalist's Guild. In addition to the courses I teach to kids, teens and adults, I also operate a clinical herbalism practice and retail apothecary in Reading, PA. If you're passing through the area, stop by sometime-I'd love to take you on an herb garden tour! My dream is to reinstate the at-home apothecary and restore lost herbal wisdom into mainstream society once again. Through my classes, I hope to empower others as to how they can use the healing power of nature and the innate healing ability within themselves to achieve and maintain a healthy, active, prosperous lifestyle. In particular, I think it's essential to foster a connection to nature and an appreciation for all its healing gifts into our young ones as they grow because they are the care-takers we will leave this world to. May all your circles spin in harmony, and "Let the Healing Journey Begin!" Tiffany
