This program builds upon and complements what is presented in the Farm to Pharmacy curriculum but can also be taken by those without previous experience who have a sincere interest in herbal medicine. Delving deeper into herbal theory and philosophy from a traditional Western, Chinese, and Ayurvedic perspective, there will be in-depth study of materia medica, formulation, traditional diagnosis, pathophysiology, herbal therapeutics, traditional and modern dietetics, and more. Designed to educate students in the use of herbs as the foundation of a cost effective, sustainable health care system at the individual, family, and community level, this training empowers participants to begin bringing sustainable health care to their community.
