On September of 2006, the Mora Youth Group went on a walk in Encinal, NM to look at different remedios that grow wild in the the area. We found different remedios that we thought would never be considered to be good for us. Like manzanilla is a pretty weed, and who would have thought it is good when you have an upset stomach. On the walk one of the mentors was explaining why we need these remedios in our lives. This is what our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. used when they would get sick because they did not have antibiotics in pill form; they didn’t have any of the medications that we have now, and they had to do with what they had, and what they had was they remedios that grew in their fields. In this walk I learned what weeds, I thought before were weeds, would help in what way to help with what you need we you are to get sick or get hurt.
