Native Medicinal Plant Garden
Prairie Moon Waldorf School maintains a plot within the Native Medicinal Plant Research Garden of the University of Kansas, located immediately north of the PMWS on E. 1600 Rd. KU researchers look into the potential of native plants to provide botanical remedies, dietary supplements, cosmetic products and pharmaceutical or veterinary agents. Research plots have been established as well as KU student vegetable and flower plots. Prairie Moon maintains a small herb garden in which plants used in biodynamic preparations, such as chamomile, stinging nettle and valerian are grown. PMWS grades students work in the herb plots as well as study in the KU demonstration gardens there.
