Sage & Native American culture


We harvested about 5 varieties of sage this week. Sage has always been an important plant & herb, commonly referred to as a sacred plant in Native American culture.  Traditionally when dried & burned, it was believed to ward off bad spirits & feelings. It’s also a great incense and it really does cleanse an area with it’s aromatic and distinctive smell. The middle schoolers got to wrap a bunch and take it home this week. The garden is an amazing place to share Native culture and this is just one way that we do that.
