Herb Cart Service Project

We are now accepting applications for our Herb Cart Program.  This service project of the Herbalista Free Clinic will provide free, earth-based care and health education beginning in 2015. The Herb Cart is a pop-up first aid station that sets up at soup kitchens and other communities in need around the Atlanta area.

We hope The Herb Cart will benefit all involved, by both get more healing herbs into the hands of the people and providing additional training opportunities for students of herbalism.  If you have been looking for a way to put your herbal knowledge to work, if you are looking for a chance to serve your community, then here is a chance to do BOTH! 

To volunteer with the Cart you must meet the following requirements:

  1. CPR and First Aid Certified within the last 2 years. This can be through any number of organizations, such as the Red Cross, American Heart Association, etc.  This must be completed prior to attending an Herb Cart Weekend Training Session.

  2. Attend an Herb Cart Weekend Training Session (Herbal First Aid, Herb Cart Protocol, etc.)  Each training session is limited to 8 participants.  Contact Lorna to register and make payment arrangements.

  3. Train at the Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic at least twice (Safety and Sanitation, Clinical Flow, Anti-Oppressive Practice, etc.)  This clinic meets every Wednesday Night at the Open Door Community.

  4. Demonstrate herbal competence, compassion & pragmatism as a healthcare worker. Please note, participation in the program is at the discretion of the Herbalista Crew. 

We will schedule Herb Cart sessions on various Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s throughout the year.
