Local character and dog musher Tim White is to present “Medicinal Plants Wild & Cultivated” at the Grand Marais Public Library Wednesday, February 22, at 6:00PM.
Those who participated in the “Mystery Plant” activity at the library through the fall of 2016 have an opportunity to learn more about the plants that were featured in that activity. White, a long time practitioner of nutritional health using natural foods and herbs, will cover more about the plants that were featured and share stories of how he learned about each, what parts of the plant are said to be beneficial, and where one might find specimens. He plans to expand upon the history of various plant’s use, place of each in many global cultures, and purported relevance to personal health and well-being. White plans to include other plants in addition to those that were featured during the fall, including: tobacco, goldenseal, Solomon seal, yarrow, Japanese knotweed, Devil’s Club, sagewort and others, some of which are controversial.
