For the past 5 years, the Herbalista Health Network has been setting up free mobile herb clinics in Atlanta, the USA, and abroad. What began as one little mobile clinic (the Herb Bus) has since grown to include Herb Carts, Herb Bikes, and pop-up health fairs! We share as we go, supporting other grassroots projects through our online toolkits, manuals, and trainings.
The healthcare crises...
In the United States and in much of the world, quality healthcare is difficult to access. Our conventional system relies heavily on intense pharmaceutical medicines and surgical interventions to the exclusion of holistic, earth-based medicine. We need your help to keep Herbalista on the road, offering herbal care and comfort to those who need it most!
Meet the Bus!
Our vision is simple – utilize mobile medicine as an affordable and practical way to reach and care for our communities. We work hard to deliver healthcare that acknowledges each person’s unique experience and affirms their humanity, custom formulating for our service users and creating personal health plans.
We serve hundreds each year through our clinics and thousands more through our educational offerings. From the start we knew that it would take more than one Bus to change the world, so we publish free manuals and offer an online toolkit for those who wish to fire up their engines and serve. Education is the key to creating health sufficiency and community resiliency.
You can help too!
With this campaign we are hoping to raise $15K, which is an average annual budget for the Herbalista Free Clinic. These funds will allow us to continue our current service routes and hopefully expand our offerings. We also hope to deepen our support for herbalists, healthcare workers, and activists looking to get new projects off of the ground.
For everyone who donates to the Healing Wheels Fundraising Campaign we will engrave your name onto the hubcaps of the Herb Bus, to have you with us as we serve!
We are thrilled to be able to offer a few extra incentives to meet our goal, including:
* matching donations up to $2,000 raised in the first week by the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine -- We made it!! Thanks everyone and thank you Chestnut School!
* online courses graciously donated by the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine for select donation levels during the 1st week!
* online courses graciously donated by the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine for select donation levels during the 2nd week!
* Herbalista Community Project Consultations for select early bird donation levels. (only 5 available)
* donations of $50 or more give you access to the Herbalista Toolkit for one year!
The donation levels in this campaign represent the cost of the services we provide. We will apply funds in a way that allows us to respond flexibly and responsibly to the needs of the communities we serve. Herbalista delivers a service report every year and we hope you will follow our progress thanks to your donations! Your donations are tax deductible, thanks to the support of our fiscal sponsor, MPower Now!
Chuffed.org was created specifically to help non-profits raise funds. They don't charge us any fees and make sure the credit card processing fee is also covered by the donor. This means 100% of your donation to us funds the project! There is an optional extra amount you can pay to help fund Chuffed to keep this fundraising website afloat.

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!
