First Aid*

The first aid remedies in this handout are designed for home use of day-to-day minor injuries and ailments. In the event of a life-threatening or traumatic situation, do not hesitate to seek professional help.

First aid plants can be used fresh from your garden, especially for topical purposes, and in the form of extracts.  Please make sure that you properly identify all plants either through a field guide or by having someone show you the proper plant. I prefer the fresh plant when available and keep salve with me as backup.

This is the premise behind Botany in a Day by Thomas Elpel. With this knowledge, the (sometimes) overwhelming world of flora becomes a welcoming friend and resource. Explore this new world with a community of fellow enthusiasts on local plant walks guided by Kathryn Waple....

During my time at UNCW, I signed up for a week-long excursion to Finland because I was interested in why Finland is one of the top countries in the world for education. I wanted to learn about what they do differently than here in America. This trip fueled my growing interest in non-traditional education and forest schools.

I learned so much about their education system and how it differs from the U.S., but the one difference that stuck out to me the most was how much emphasis Finland places on play and the outdoors. The first school we visited...
