Seed2Health Learning Health Alliance (or the "Alliance") is a grassroots community that has come together to learn which botanical therapeutics may - or may not - work for each of us.  As we help others and they, in turn, help us, we see that getting and staying healthy can become easier and less expensive. 

We share the belief that, together, we can re-imagine how to gather, learn from, and safely share knowledge through the lens of our common health experiences. We call this
learning health.

While most of us live in the State of Maine, our work in co-creating
learning health is connecting us with people all over the world - people who believe that together we can transform our own health and, in so doing, be an example of the health (and healthcare) system we all want. 

Who is in the Alliance?

We have come together as two communities: 
  • One community, the Plant Learning Health Community, is those who grow, produce, test and sell plant and plant-based medicines.
  • One community, the Member Learning Health Community, is each of us who use (or just want to learn about) plant and plant-based medicines and those who guide us about using them to stay healthy, live best with chronic health conditions and/or recover from illness or injury.  

What is the Alliance Working on Now?

  • Co-creating Seed2Health Learning Health Consensus Guidances, Principles and Governance

  • Learning together about "immersive learning."
In collaboration with registered patients and licensed cannabis caregivers in Maine's Medical Cannabis Program along with allied clinicians and other health professionals and practitioners,  
  • Researching models for advancing beneficial plant research   

  • Launching Seed2Health Services, L3C in Maine by Summer, 2023

  • Designing Seed2Health Learning Health Exchange and related co-innovations

How to Connect with Seed2Health

There are three ways to connect with Seed2Health Learning Health Alliance:
  • Keep Me Posted
For those interested in staying connected as the Alliance continues to shape its Consensus Guidances and gets ready to launch its services later this year, please send a short email to letting us know your name and the email address you'd like us to use.  Please rest assured that your contact data will never be shared by us with anyone else.  During September, you should start hearing about upcoming discussions, on-line education forums, and various events.
  • Join Seed2Health Learning Health Alliance
If you would like to connect with a member to learn more about Seed2Health Alliance or become a member, please send an email to and tell us a bit more about yourself.  This way we can make sure that you hear from someone who shares your interests.

Following are some examples of what you might tell us: 
  • I am interested in learning more about learning health for my own health journey.  
  • I want to see how I might be able to help others to learn from my experiences.
  • I want to find out how the services or products that I provide might benefit others and how Seed2Health might benefit what I do.
Please note: While every person brings their time and expertise as learning health "members", some also bring valuable perspectives of their education and work.  This expertise in research, crop and soils management, cultivation, testing, safety, manufacturing, pharmacy and health is informing the voluntary consensus guidances we are shaping together.
