with Sir Julian Rose, Jadwiga Lopata and Professor Man Fong Mei (Director, AcuMedic).
Organic farming is essential, not only to our own health, but also for the environmental health of the planet. Cross-contamination of chemical fertilisers and GM crops filterthrough our food chain and affect water and soil for generations to come. The effects on herbal medicine are no different.
In this talk, Sir Julian Rose and Jadwiga Lopata will present their experience of organic farming, gained through their pioneering work in the field. Together with Professor Mei, they will be discussing how their experiences can benefit the way herbal medicine is produced so that Chinese medicine can be free from contamination.
Sir Julian Rose is a leading exponent of organic farming and began the transformation of the Hardwick Estate in South Oxfordshire to the standards of organic farming in 1975. The estate is now one of Britain’s leading organic mixed farms. Jadwiga Lopata is an organic farmer, who lives near Krakow, Poland.
In 2000, she formed The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside (ICPPC) and was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2002 for her works on rural protection.
Professor Mei has made strenuous efforts to ensure that all AcuMedic herbs are free from contamination. AcuMedic have been selling Chinese herbs for over 30 years and have established strong and very strict partnerships with herb growers all over China. We also have experts in London to check the herbs before we sell them to our patients.
Saturday 10 August, 3pm – 5pm at AcuMedic, 101 – 105 Camden High Street, London, NW1 7JN
