In this joint Village Vancouver, Marpole-Oakridge Neighbourhood Food Network, and Vancouver Arts Colloquium Society workshop, we invite Dr. Lily Chunling Liu, a doctor well-versed in Chinese medicinal herbs and horticulture specialist, to present not only on the renowned, long-standing benefits of Chinese herbs, but the problems arising from their complexity, as well as pointers on growing and using them properly.
We will learn how to grow Chinese medicinal herbs through interactive learning games and exercises (seed/leaf identification, group activities), as well as introduce selected real herbs that can be properly and sustainably grown in this local climate without losing medicinal properties. Our goal of this project is to introduce lesser known Chinese medicinal herbs in our local communities, and to a promote healthy, sustainable lifestyle and land stewardship.
