On June 27th, herbalist Leslie Alexander and guests strolled around the grounds of the Corry Area Historical Society to explore common medicinal herbs. Leslie spoke about identifying common "weeds", their virtues and how and when they can be used to support health and wellness. This was a free program with any donations going to support the museum. We look forward to her visiting again!
Leslie is a professional herbalist based in Erie PA and spends her time working with clients, teaching, and making herbal medicines. She's keen to share, "The People's Medicine".
Please let us know if you recognize anyone in this picture, the building they are standing near, or the occasion. Thank you!
