Herb garden around gazebo

United Tribes started a living laboratory on campus for learning about the pharmacological heritage of native people. A small plot surrounding a gazebo behind the college Human Resources building contains a selection of herbs indigenous to the region and used by tribal people. An honoring was hosted on September 27. In the gazebo is Wanda Agnew, director of USDA Extenstion/Land Grant Programs, at left, and Martina McKinney, extension research coordinator. Diabetes and Mother Earth students helped design the plot; Land Grant staffers did the planting and upkeep.
