Mental Health Medicinal Herb Garden
Partially inspired by the Icarus Project (http://theicarusproject.net/), this class aims to start a medicinal herb garden open to the public which would encourage seeking new options to navigating mental health. In addition to managing a community garden plot with a variety of helpful herbs, classes/book discussions/movie viewings generated from pooled resources will help us learn how to utilize herbs grown there, along with gaining a more comprehensive view of herbal medicine and exploring new directions in mental health. The roots of curiosity and self-education must be present in this group, as we help each other learn and break away from health being only understood or comprehensible by "professionals". We are the experts on our own experiences. Let's get our hands dirty and our minds buzzing.
