Healing Wheels

 

 

Dearest Community,

We did it!  Your generosity, belief, and dedication pulled us across the finish line! 

Thank you so much for supporting the Healing Wheels Fundraiser and the Herbalista Free Clinic. We surpassed our goal, raising close to $19,000 including off-line donations!

We are both thrilled and humbled by the opportunity to continue serving the people, the plants, and the planet. And we look forward to doing it together.  

💚The Herbalista Crew

 

Healing Wheels: Herbalista Community Fundraiser!

Herbalista believes healthcare is a human right.  We provide free, mobile herb clinics in Atlanta and around the world.  With your help, we can continue to put herbal medicine in the hands of the people!

Our goal for this campaign was $15K, which is the average cost for one year’s programming.  Our free clinics serve hundreds each year and with your support we can keep the wheels turning on this important community resource.

Thank you to all of our friends who offered these amazing perks:

* Matching donations up to $2,000 raised in the first week by the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine

* Early Bird Perks— such as online herbal courses graciously donated by the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine.

* For all our donors – your name engraved on the hubcaps for the Bus, so no matter where we go, we will be carried by the love and support of our community!

 

In the United States and in much of the world, quality healthcare is difficult to access. Together we can build a more inclusive model of care, one that acknowledges each person’s unique experience and affirms their humanity.

Herbalista uses mobile medicine as an affordable and practical way to reach and care for underserved communities, and have served thousands since their first clinic, a mere 5 years ago!  Please consider a donation or a share with your friends to help spread the word and keep the wheels turning on this important resource!

Much appreciation to the communities who welcome us into their folds, love to the friends and family who share our journey, and gratitude to the mighty crew who holds it down in the ATL and now DUB to make it all possible.  

And the crew I speak of is larger than Herbalista.  It is larger than the Big House or the Open Door Community or the Apollo House.  Our crew rolls deep.  We may not always know each other, but we are headed in the same direction.  We may not have realized we had each other’s backs, but we defend the same rights and stand by the same ideals.

A big shout-out to the urban agrarians; the homesteaders and humanitarians; the craftsmen and caretakers; the teachers and radicals; the permaculturalists and pacifists; the wellness warriors and earth champions.

Thank you friends of the field, the forest, the street, and the subway.

May we continue to rally together, for health and community!

Check out this video for an overview of our programming:

The Herbalista Health Network began 5 years ago, when a little VW Bus pulled into the back parking lot of the Open Door Community and set up a free herbal clinic. Nicknamed the Herb Bus, our vision was simple – utilize mobile medicine as an affordable and practical way to reach the folks who didn’t often have access to care.  We also wanted to make sure that the healthcare we delivered acknowledged each person’s unique experience and affirmed their humanity.

Over the years we have added new clinics (like the Herb Cart and Dublin and Cork Herb Bikes) and developed educational programing and online resources to build a healthcare network based on solidarity and not charity!

Special thanks to everyone that helped create this video: Corinne Lee, Matthew Vetter, Lorna Mauney-Brodek and the Herbalista Crew of volunteers.
