A Walk Through Santa Barbara’s Rich Traditional Plant Medicine Landscape
Walking through the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Julie Cordero-Lamb and other members of the Syuxtun Plant Mentorship Collective spot native plants and share their medicinal properties. Learn about yarrow, wild ginger, Apache plume, among other plants, and about the unique geography that gives the region its unique botanical diversity. “The botanical diversity is just off the hook. It's a special place. Our ancestors had to be master horticulturalists,” Cordero-Lamb says.
