"I remember gathering plants and berries with my grandmother while she shared her stories and her deep understanding of traditional plants and their uses. My grandmother healed us with her medicinal plants--everything from pink eye, sore throats, stomach ailments, aches and pains, and infections. She'd make us these beautiful, healing teas." -Carrie.
