Medicines from the Edge: a Tropical Herbal Convergence – Aguas Zarcas, Costa Rica

How fantastic would it be to attend a conference like this one? If you are in Costa Rica in March, how about you drop past?


A friend, Stephen Brooks, recently contacted me with information on an enthnobotanical / medicinal plant convergence he is coordinating next March in Costa Rica. This will undoubtedly be a fascinating and highly educational event for anyone interested in ethnobotany and or related subjects (plants, permaculture, agroforestry, anthropology, ethnopharmacology, natural history, etc). Below I have posted some additional information on the event and relevant links.
Take a look at the website and feel free to contact the organizers at with any questions you may have.The information below is quoted from the Convergence website.
