Wilfred Cornwall is a local Afro-Costa Rican herbalist, who serves his community and its visitors in the traditional way of his grandmother and mother before him. Wilfred’s knowledge represents a fusion of African and Native American ethnomedicine that was passed down through generations. His story shows us the true challenge of traditional healers in a modern world and their need to adapt their practices if they are going to save their ancient art form from disappearing. Wilfred is the primary botanical contributor to Hidden Garden’s Afro-Botanical Collection.
