COMPONENTS OF THE UBRICA RETAIL CLINICAL CENTRE (URCC)

By Jane M. Jeremiah

The basic components of a URCC include a one-health clinic/health facility, a retail store surrounded by a series of produce/product processing workshops.

The workshops in the URCC model will process fresh produce (food co-op), milk (dairy co-op), edible animal products (meat co-op), garments (leather co-op), furniture (wood co-op), and metal fabrication (metal co-op). It will also feature a veterinary clinic, a water plant, a healing garden, and a flower garden.
