Pioneer Medicine


   This class, taught by internationally known Master Herbalist Kim Welborn, is a fun-filled, hands-on, educational experience. Focused on the traditional folk-medicine remedies of the first settlers and plain-crossers here, you’ll learn how today’s medicines evolved from old-time practices, why cough syrups are cherry-flavored, what the original coffee was made of, and the first types of pain relievers.
