Food Forests are great ways to grow food, but many of the plants found in the Food Forest have medicinal properties too!  This feature of our blog is dedicated to exploring some of the medicinal potential that local plants (both native and non-native) possess.  

We will be adding new plant monographs seasonally, so keep checking in to learn more about  plant medicines in the Food Forest.  

For the purposes of the Carolinian Food Forest project, a medicinal plant is defined as any plant, in whole or in part, that has been used traditionally for its healing properties, and/or is supported in the scientific literature as possessing therapeutic properties.
