In this three-week summer program, 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 and 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 Zoom-visit local medicinal gardens and meet local herbalists to further our knowledge and experiences. 

Our work will be conducted largely remotely unless conditions and regulations allow us limited in-person activities. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous (scheduled) meetings.

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

Healthcare, herbalism, botany, environmental studies, cultural and Indigenous studies, community studies, education
