New Attraction: Minnesota State Fair Healing Garden

Minnesota State Fair Healing Garden

Applying aloe vera to burns is a centuries-old practice. Lavender helps with sleep disorders and treats anxiety, stress and headaches. But did you know fennel can be used to treat nausea, colic and digestive issues and increases milk production for nursing mothers?


Have you discovered ashwagandha, used for more than 3,000 years to relieve stress, and it increases energy, improves concentration, lowers blood sugar and treats insomnia? This and dozens more plants known for their healing and therapeutic properties fill the beautifully designed State Fair Healing Garden.

  • In 2019, Phase 1 of the garden will include educational signage amidst the waterfalls and gazebo pointing out each plant and explaining its medicinal uses. Get inspired to integrate the healing power of plants into your health regimen.


Located on the east side of Cosgrove Street on the south side of the 4-H Building
