HAALo is pleased to bring renowned herbalist and instructor 7Song to Nevada City, CA for a weekend of herbal exploration, whimsical zombie apocalypse scenarios, street medicine, and an extra day of advanced herbalism training for community herbalists. With his vast experience of street medicine first-aid, materia medica, botany, body systems, and clinical herbalism, he brings forward a fresh, down-to-earth, yet scientific study of plant medicine.

Please join us for two days of intermediate to advanced herbal studies, with an extra day for those interested in his advanced class. We will be covering mental health, digestion, the nervous system, first-aid, street medicine, and (tongue in cheek) the zombie apocalypse - or community emergency herbal medicine.
