The Chamberlin Presents: Vanessa Cole-“Nature’s Pharmacy”

Thursday, June 23rd
The Solarium, 9th Floor, The Chamberlin
Presentation from 10:00 to 11:00 am

Dandelion Root tea for malaria? Wild Cherry Bark tea for bronchitis? Honey to heal a cut? Oh, the “medicines” that nature provides! Find out what plants (and other natural items) had healing properties and were used by the Southern people during the Civil War when they were unable to get medicines through the blockade.

In a theatrical presentation, Vanessa presents information from Civil War times. She will present at 10 am in the Solarium on the 9th floor of the Chamberlin. The presentation is open to the public, at no charge. For more information, call 637-7203.
