Help crowdfund ‘Healing Plants and the People Who Use Them’ class

healers-students

For millennia, plants have been used for healing.

As older generations of traditional healers pass away, much of their knowledge of medicinal plants and their uses is in danger of disappearing. Even as these practices ebb in indigenous communities around the globe, there is a growing interest in reconnecting with the natural world, as well as an appreciation of the breadth and depth of these traditional bodies of knowledge.

At Cornell, students will be exploring the relationship between plants, healing, and the community elders who use plants to heal in an exciting spring semester class, PLHRT 4940: Healing Plants and the People Who Use Them.
