Native Uses of Native Plants

On Saturday, November 19th, Helen Hamilton, author and former high school science teacher, will deliver a PowerPoint talk about the food, structures, and medicines used by Native Americans. Helen will explore how the native materials provided the survival needs for early settlers of eastern North America, with an emphasis on the experience at Jamestown. This event will be held at the Freedom Park Interpretive Center and is part of the Learn and Grow Educational Series sponsored by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden. The program is free, although a $5.00 donation to help the Garden grow is appreciated. For more information, contact Helen at 757-564-4494 or email her at helen48@cox.net.
