This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Natural Medicine.

In this badge bit, you will harvest, dry and store one of the following herbs:

 ginger root
 peppermint leaf
 mullein leaf
 chamomile blossom
 lavender blossom
 alfalfa leaf or blossom
 oat straw
 lemon balm
 raspberry leaf
 strawberry leaf
 oregon grape stem or root bark
 rose hips, buds, or blossom petals

You need to dry enough to make a tea, infusion or decoction. If you have not  already, you will also make a journal page about the uses and attributes and how to ID and how to grow the herb

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
 - a picture of your fresh herbs
 - a picture of your herbs drying (hanging, in a dehydrator, or in a bag, etc)
 - a picture of your herbs in a sealed and labeled container.
 - a picture of your journal page about your herbs attributes

Nicole, I think we can simplify the badge by leaving out this in-between BB.   Let the student report on the end BB directly in the badge thread.
I agree. Here's the link:
