ILLUSTRATED TALK: Traditional Healing Plants & Remedies

Herbal medicine was important in Gaelic Ireland and it was believed that there were 365 parts to the body with a different plant to cure each part. Join Marina Levitina, nature educator, artist, and author, as she discusses some of the trees, shrubs and wildflowers commonly found in our bogs, meadows and hedgerows that were used as traditional cures and remedies.
