The Tallgrass Prairie: Grocery Store, Apothecary, and Love Shop
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Native Americans and early settlers saw the prairie as their home – a place that supplied everything from groceries to textiles to medicine to love charms. Join prairie steward, Cindy Crosby, for interactive stories of prairie ethnobotany – how people have used prairie plants throughout history – and the potential resources our prairie plants may hold for the future.
Cindy Crosby is the author, compiler, or contributor to more than 20 books, including “Tallgrass Prairie Converstaions: In Search of the Prairie Spirit” (with Thomas Dean, 2017). Learn more about Cindy at www.cindycrosby.com.
