Learn about plants used by Native Americans

Gardeners interested in plants used by Native Americans can learn more at the March 2, 2021, 6:30 pm meeting of the Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan. Nathan Wright,  a tribal member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, will present a historical overview about common plants that have been cultivated and used by Native Americans.

The virtual meeting is open to the public. The event is free to MGANM members and a $5 donation is requested for non-members. To register go to by March 1. All those who register will receive a link to the meeting via email.

Nathan is a firm believer of his cultural teachings. “If you do things in a good way, good things will happen,” he said. “There has been a lot of interest in plants used by native peoples and our membership has been requesting this topic for a number of years,” Michele Worden, MGANM President said. 

About the Presenter: Nathan Wright has taught plant classes at Great Lakes Herb Faire, Michigan State Extension, Michigan Farmer’s Conference, American Indian Inter-Tribal, and is a board member of United Plant Savers.
