Herbal Medicine for Activists
March 2, 2012
In addition to the upcoming training, North Star Health Collective is happy to host Herbal Medicine for Activists!
Friday, March 23, 3:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Come learn about common plants that have a wide variety of uses. Getting
to know the plants where you are; those that are within reach are going to
be the most useful in an emergency. The workshop includes Herbs for
Prevention, Resilience, First Aid, Recovery, and Rejuvenation. This
workshop is for activists and health care workers supporting social and
environmental causes or campaigns. Training in first aid is helpful but
not required. You must register to attend.

Project – an educational endeavor that protects and cultivates medicinal

Other details: This workshop is offered on a sliding-scale basis – no one
