Kuru ethnobotany database workshop

Members of the Kuru Family of Organizations from the Shakawe and Ghanzi areas attended a three day workshop about the use of databases in ethnobotany at HOORC early this week. Facilitated by plantsandpeopleafrica's Roger and Alison Heath, the workshop participants designed a database for collection of local beliefs and uses of plants and animals among San bushmen. The group will use the new tool to produce a book about bushveld food and medicines.
