Ancestral Medicine Cabinet

Heritage Programming for all ages! Want to learn how our ancestors prepared home remedies? Curious about reconnecting with how our Babas, Omas, and Great Grannies cultivated and used plant medicine? What would our predecessors have done in the event of a teething baby, broken bone, or infection in the time before doctors? We will be exploring the connection between the remedies of our ancestors and the herbal medicine we use today, and will learn how to bridge the old with the modern. Learn how to bring (and make!) some of Baba’s remedies into our modern day medicine cabinet that we can use for ourselves and our families.

"My class and I thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Precinct. Each instructor provided a different approach to the information which was engaging for all of the students. Very organized and well run."
