I am a French herbalist of English origin currently in my third year as a student at Lyon`s school of medicinal planta (elpm = Ecole Lyonnais de plantes medicinales).
The aim of this blog is to accompany a three month trip to South America (Chile, Perou, Bolivia, Paraguay) and then future trips to England in order to create cross-cultural relationships between ELPM and herbalists in the two countries mentioned. Other ex and current students will hopefully be making similar connections with herbalists in other parts of the world. In this way a worldwide herbalist network can be created where experiences, traditions, methods, plant knowledge can be shared.
This is just the begining , the form in which these connections will develop is not yet determined and will depend very much on the people involved, their level of implication etc.
