In this three-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 and meet local herbalists to further our knowledge and experiences. 

This class starts in Week 3 of the Second Summer Session (Mon, Aug 11). To avoid additional fees, you must register (or drop) by July 31.
