Turning Buckthorn Into Toys and Kids Into Stewards
Buckthorn is a wonderfully unfortunate bane/boon. It is a beautiful, tough, and hearty scourge. So why not make the bully do some good for once? Learn simple tools and safe techniques to turn buckthorn into something better. Engage the youngest stewards and keep them coming back. Empower children with the trust of real tools to fuel their imagination, empathy, and ability to help the natural world.
