In this four-week summer intensive students will gain an introduction to medicinal plants in late summer within the context of community herbalism. We will learn to identify and care for medicinal plants in the Longhouse Ethnobotanical Gardens and also gain exposure to basic concepts and issues in botanical medicine –– including body systems, medicine-making, and decolonizing herbalism –– and practice nature journaling. Additionally, we will visit local medicinal gardens to further our knowledge and experiences. 

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

botany, ethnobotany, health, Indigenous studies, and botanical medicine
