You will proceed to a small collection of surrounding specimens. Then you will organize, annotate and illustrate your herbarium. You can then complete with drawings of medicinal plants following the example of another great author, passionate about botany, Jean Cocteau.
You can bring a small notebook to present your herbarium.
A method and examples will accompany you in your creation stages.
