Harvesting calendula- let’s get medicinal.

I harvested a ton of calendula flowers today. Calendula has some amazing medicinal properties, and I plan on making a healing salve w/ students. There is some great info on how to do that here:

This is a great opportunity to discuss medicinal plants and have students be able to take that knowledge/product home and use it!
