UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens

At the end of ‘Oriental Medicine II’, we take a field trip to the UC Berkeley – Botanical Gardens where we do a tour of the Oriental herbal collection. The gardens are beautiful! It’s a fun way to get your hands on the medicines that we have been studying for over 8 months.

The UC Berkeley Botanical Garden is located at 200 Centennial Drive in Berkeley, CA.

Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm

We took a field trip up to Peg Shaffer’s herb farm in Petaluma. Wonderful, organic herbs! Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take photos of the actual herbs.
