At the Institute we are committed to helping ensure that herbal medicine is as accessible as possible, and know the value there is in connecting herbalism and communities. We are delighted to launch two new awards to acknowledge the community herbalism being undertaken by herbalists nationally and internationally. Each award will be given to an individual herbalist or herbal team in recognition of their work, but their project will receive the monetary award, to help to further its reach.
Community herbalism involves herbalists helping to maintain the health of their self-defined community through the use of herbs, whether this is through free herbal clinics, community herbal gardens, accessible herbal education or many other means.
You can find out more about the award from the Herbal Medicine Awards page
