Join us March 13, 2024, from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm for the second Wellness Wednesday Workshop!

Step into the rich cultural and ecological tapestry of the Great Lakes Region with the Beal Botanical Garden and MSU Museum. We’ll learn about the significance of Sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata), a plant deeply rooted in both heritage and nature. Participants will make single strand twine from this plant and similar grasses, hear about the stories and practices interwoven with Sweetgrass, and gain a newfound appreciation for this vital plant in the Great Lakes Region.
