Florida Native Medicinal Plants Workshop

Come out to the Historic Seminole Inn to learn about Florida native plants and how to use them medicinally. Each workshop covers two in-depth plant profiles, samples of the plants we discuss, and a hands on activity with one of the plants covered!

This month we will be learning about our native Echinacea and Yarrow.  Although neither can be found growing wild in our county, they are both native to Florida and are very important to pollinators.
