Deep Roots

Deep Roots: Plants as Medicine fosters reflection and encourages lively discussion as it delves into our modern preconceptions about the relationship between plants and wellness.

Located in the Sun Room of the West Winds Mansion overlooking the Florence Bakken Medicinal Gardens, visitors discover the history of plant-based medicine around the world, uncover the variety of uses and preparations across cultures, and reflect on the advances made in plant medicine as our scientific understanding has evolved.

This experience serves as a companion exhibit to The Bakken Museum’s three distinct gardens and offers not only a look into the past, but a powerful glimpse into the future of plants as medicine.
