"Is There an Apothecary in Your Garden?"

You’ll learn about how they were used by American Indians and the first Europeans colonists, their role in saving lives during the Civil War, as well as the latest studies that prove them to be potent sources of healing today.

Patricia Kyritsi Howell, author of Medicinal Plants of the Southern Appalachians, is a practicing herbalist and director of BotanoLogos School of Herbal Studies, the only school for herbal medicine in Georgia.
