A Game About Herbs

A Board Game That Teaches Families About Healing Herbs!

A friend of mine just told me about a game their family enjoys that actually teaches players how and when to use different herbs for situations that they land on during the game. The game aims to connect kids to nature while teaching them skills they could actually use in real life.

The game is even made with the earth in mind! “Made in the U.S.A. Game box and board are made with 100% recycled chipboard Printed with vegetable oil based inks Water based coating on paper, no varnish Forest Stewardship Council certified paper All material is 100% recyclable” (Learning Herbs.com 2014)

I’m excited to try this game myself!

Fertilizer Ban Now In Effect to Protect the Indian River Lagoon

Counties and cities along the Indian River Lagoon have

enacted ordinances banning the use of fertilizers during the raining season to prevent fertilizer from running off and polluting the lagoon, which has been declining in quality due to pollution from fertilizers, wastewater, and other chemicals and toxins. This has led to the death of thousands of acres of seagrass, and countless fish, birds, dolphins, and manatees.

Help protect our waterways and comply with this ban, and better yet, replace some or all of your turf and ornamental landscaping with native plants that don’t need chemical fertilizer!
