Introduction to Botanical Medicine


Helen Grimm

Tuesday, May 16th

The Bookstore Restaurant

Wellfleet, MA

Plants can be used in a variety of ways as both food and medicine. Helen will introduce the audience to an overview of what botanical medicine is, and discuss how we can use it in our everyday lives to nourish and heal ourselves and our loved ones.

Helen Grimm studied plant medicine at the Pacific School of Herbal Medicine in Oakland, CA in 1991, and at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine in Albuquerque, NM. In 1999 she received her BS in nursing from UMass Amherst, where she graduated summa cum laude with the honors focus of helping healthcare providers understand the basics of herbal medicine. She is currently the school nurse at the Truro Central School, and coordinates Truro’s Farm to School and the Truro Gleaning programs. She also works with Sustainable CAPE implementing a Fruit & Veggie Prescription Program. A Cape Cod native, Helen lives with her family in Truro, where she is also a gardener and artist. She may often be found digging in the dirt, foraging in wild places of the outer cape, and searching for weeds.
