Herbal and Community Approaches to Disasters: An Introduction

When disaster strikes, government response is often slow leaving victims without help for days. Community preparedness and response is vital. This is an introductory workshop that will provide learning and preparedness resources and suggestions for further education. We will share important stories from our trip to Haiti. Visit our website to learn about our work in Haiti after the earthquake: http://serpentine-project.org/.This workshop can be followed up with further trainings from the Serpentine Project, such as, conflict resolution, negotiation skills, non-violent communication, basic first aid/herbal first aid, disaster herbalism, emotional first aid/disaster psychology, setting up/running a temporary clinic and turning that clinic into an enduring project.If you are interested in attending, please RSVP at leah@serpentine-project.org or call 715-977-0908Sliding-scale fee: $20-60When disaster strikes, government response is often slow leaving victims without help for days.
