Let's explore beautiful native medicinal plants you can grow in your own backyard! Using the NCBG display gardens as our classroom, we will meet both shade-loving and sun-loving plants. We'll learn about each plant's growth patterns, nutrient needs and growing tips. Spatial and design considerations will be included. We'll discuss each plant's medicinal qualities and simple preparations you can make at home, and we'll explore differences between cultivating plants at home and wildcrafting.
