This is an informative study of medicinal plants used by American Indians around Ft. Ancient. As we revitalize our medicinal garden this year with new and different species, we will explore the vast knowledge of American Indian peoples in regards to how plants help humans. Did you know that Red Willow has the same natural compounds as an aspirin? Staghorn Sumac and Purple Coneflower contain large amounts of Vitamin C. We will explore our garden and surrounding woods to learn about nature’s bounty.
