Parents, educators, teens, and children will find inspiration for back-to-roots living.

Not only a resource for teachers and homeschooling parents, The Children’s Heritage Sourcebook is a cookbook, manual, and activity book teaching modern homegrown practices of self-sufficiency to children, teenagers, and adults alike.

The activities, eighty-five recipes, and projects are complementary and pertinent to the curriculum of kindergarten through eighth grade, with some specific to the teen years. Seasonal cooking, pickling, and gluten-free sourdough making; natural history and information on raising and caring for animals like horses, quail, dogs, and rabbits; and craft and garden activities such as natural dyes, wreaths, flower crowns, and making your own herbal soap and skincare are all included.

Lavishly illustrated with 250 full-color images from photographer Sara Prince, this reference book is comfortable on a classroom desk, on your kitchen table, or laid open for use in your backyard garden.
