Details:The Europeans who settled the colonies had substantial knowledge of how to use plants in cooking and healing. They brought seeds and plants with them and saw other favorites come over with each new ship. Their gardens developed from their own knowledge and from the new information obtained by the natives they encounter. Their gardens and their medicines emerged as a blend of old and new. Debra Hultgren is a retired public school educator and administrator. She is a practicing community herbalist and a master gardener. She grows, harvests and prepares plant foods and medicines and teaches others how to include these healing traditions in their own lives.
