Wildcraft! takes you and your teammates on an adventure up the mountain to collect ingredients for Grandma's pie. Will you harvest the right plants to help with the trouble you run into along the way? Will you make it back before nightfall? The only way to win is by helping each other out. And because it's graphically driven, your pre-readers can play too.
Going up the mountain to visit Grandma you will travel through several ecosystems. You'll learn about plants, where they grow, and how to use them. Before you know it, you and your kids will be identifying plants in the park or yard… and you’ll find yourself saying, “Hey! That’s chickweed! I can eat that AND use it to heal a wound.”
Wildcraft! is a beautifully illustrated, nature-based, cooperative game created in the tradition of the classic board games. Remember the slides, short cuts and ladders in Candy Land or Chutes and Ladders? When you were a kid playing board games, weren’t these your favorite parts? Well, Wildcraft! has waterfalls to slide down, logs to cross and deer trails to wander down — all part of the adventure.
Fun Fact: Wildcrafting is the harvesting of wild plants.
Bonus: Game includes access to a digital story that will take players deeper into safe and sustainable plant harvesting.

ABOUT THE COMPANY Learning Herbs was founded by John and Kimberly Gallagher. We love what they do and appreciate that they share their passion for nature with the rest of us! Here's their story:
"We started LearningHerbs when our kids were really little. We wanted to share how simple it is to infuse healing herbs into your busy life. We believe everyone deserves access to the herbs that grow around them, and to know how to use them for food and healing. Since 2005, we’ve shared our family’s story as we’ve created herbal recipes every month.
When our son Rowan was little, we always wanted to play the nature and cooperative games with him. However, he always pulled out Candy Land or Chutes and Ladders. Then it hit us! Why not make a nature-based educational game featuring all the things kids love about those timeless board games? Also, why not make cooperative play even MORE fun than competitive play? Wildcraft! was born! Now, everyone can share their passion for plants with their kids and grandkids in a way that brings everyone together."
A portion of the proceeds from this game benefit United Plant Savers. Their mission is to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come.
