Ointment Making

In this session we discussed food chains and the importance of plants even to top predators as the creatures they rely on for food invariably rely on plants for theirs. We also discussed how some plants can also have medicinal properties. We made ourselves some healing plantain ointment to take home for our scrapes and bruises and seeing as we had a fire lit, we made some popcorn noting it was made from a grain and totally plant based.

When group (a) were making their ointment rain began to fall.  Seeing as it has been so dry recently we decided that this needed to be encouraged and some very serious rain-dancing began to see if we could make it last all night!

Group (b) had lots of sunshine for their session so we made some sticky weed juice drink to help cool us down.
