God placed plants here for the use of man and animals, and over the many years since then, man has learned much about how to use these plants. Some we use for food, some for clothes, some for medicine, and still others to make a large variety of products that we use every day.In the early days of this country, and today in Germany and England, herbs were and are used for healing. Here, and in many other places, the older women in the country and the villages were the ones who helped folks when they were ill. Folks called the doctor very rarely. These women learned the information that they knew from their mothers and grandmothers and passed it down over the years.
