The exhibition focuses on people who have always used herbs in their everyday and professional lives. During this research trip, we visited Biruta Raglis (Żegary, Podlasie Province) who told us about the application of herbs in traditional medicine. We also met Anastasia Sidor (Puńsk, Podlasie Province) who introduced us to herbs used in various annual and family rituals. We talked to Zbigniew Bliziński (Gorajec, Podkarpackie Province), a herb gatherer knowledgeable about herbal medicine, herb cultivation and the use of herbs in the household. We visited Renata Płoskoń (Folwarki near Ciechanów, Podkarpackie Province) who is passionate about herbs, especially their application in agriculture and horticulture. Finally, we talked to Danuta Radulska (Wasilówka, Podlasie Province) who specialises in double weave and uses plants to dye wool. All protagonists of the exhibition talked to us about their experiences and knowledge they have gained over the years. We warmly invite you to come and see the exhibition to get acquainted with these rich traditions related to herbs.
