In the early years of the formation of America as a country, plants played a big role in our culture. Learn specifically how both people and plants influenced the culture of Appalachia in this talk.

Join Sheila Kingsbury, ND, RH (AHG), on a journey back in time to the early days of the formation of America as a country, as she talks about the people and the plants that influenced the culture of Appalachia as well as the practice of Western Herbalism as we know it today. She will highlight a few plants native to the Southern Appalachian area and how they were used in the 1700-1800s and contrast to how they are used today.
