The Community Herbal Intensive is an educational program for herbalists and other plant lovers who want to make a connection between herbal medicine and community health. The monthly workshops will take participants out into the field to work with plants or into the streets to develop community projects. This program is for anyone interested in furthering their studies of herbal medicine in a hands-on environment while developing skills for creating community projects. The goal of the program is to give participants skills, ideas, and strategies to start community projects that emphasize holistic health, folk medicine, education, gardening, and foraging. They will be introduced to the concepts of public health and liberation theory so herbs, education, and community health can be interwoven into well-planned projects.

This class has been postponed. So sorry for the inconvenience. We put the last layer of cobb on our classroom and it is taking longer to dry than expected. Stay tuned for updates!
The Art of Medicine series was started because what people really want to learn is how to use herbal medicine in a hands-on setting.
