This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Foraging.
Foraging is like gardening but without all the planting, weeding, nibbler protection or watering. If you live in the country there are lots of road sides to search. If you live in the suburbs there are tons of fruittrees that need to get picked. In the city there are many businesses and parks with edible landscaping. Just make sure you aren't trespassing when you work on this BB.
Plant identification is the most important part of foraging. Get one or two good books on the edibles of your region. Be sure you know what you're picking!
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Make a cup of tea from one of:
- nettle - rose hips
- pineapple weed
To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
- A picture of one of the plants in the wild
- A picture of the yummy tea in a cup
- This is "Foraging" so the plants can not be cultivated by you.
The overall mission is to change the world. When you've done that, then you can read this tiny ad:
