Bear Creek Friends and Medicinal Herbs

It was a foggy morning as I traveled toward Bear Creek Friends meetinghouse this morning.

But instead of going to the meetinghouse, I traveled a couple of miles down Bear Creek Road to the farm of my Aunt Win and Uncle Ellis Standing. Bear Creek meeting was held on their farm this morning. As my cousin Cheri Standing, a pediatrician, explains in the following video, medical herbalist Frank Norman was going to lead a walk around the farm, pointing out herbs and plants and explaining what their medicinal properties were.

We spent about two hours walking through the field in the rain. It felt like meeting for worship in nature. Following are a few of the herbs and plants we learned about.
