The Farmworker Association of Florida is partnering with Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) to create a "Farmacia Popular" (a People's Farmacy) for the migrant worker community.  Design thinking and community organizing will allow traditional knowledge and natural plants and herbs to be used to address the negative health impacts on this community from repeated exposure to pesticides.
