Litchfield County Extension Center

Would you like to learn about ethnobotany; how the indigenous knowledge of local plants is very rich, and how the information is being lost as cultures are rapidly changing ? Professor Lizarralde will cover general ethnobotany and how indigenous peoples of southern New England used plants. He will bring his JetBoil and make some teas of different plants for people to test (e.g., sassafras and spicebush).
