For this badge bit, you will create elderberry syrup &/or gummies:
 - Make a journal page about a recipe for a elderberry syrup/gummies along with dosage information.
 - Make an elderberry syrup/gummies, with a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

 - Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and and how to ID and how to grow elderberry. Add it to the herb section.

Here are some links to guide you in researching elderberries and in creating your syrup/gummies:
