Wild is Good, a coloring book of useful wild plants

Wild is Good: A Coloring Book of Useful Wild Plants¬†features 27 hand drawn images of common useful weeds, with an interesting fact about each. Wild is Good is a perfect introduction to the world of useful and edible plants; children may recognize backyard favorites like dandelion, wood sorrel and wild violet, as well as flowering plants like chicory and honeysuckle that they’ve seen growing in parks and along roadways.

Plants include curly dock, plantain, clover, varieties of mint and more. The majority of plants included are safe to eat right out of the ground, so while we don’t encourage little ones to eat things they find without adult supervision, the plants they are most likely to encounter on their own are safe to handle.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for an introduction to the plants in the book including tips on where to find them and how to use them, plus extra content like free coloring pages. We’d love to see how you and your littles are enjoying exploring alongside Wild is Good; please feel free to share your favorite plants and spots to find them!
