The Herbalista Free Clinic, aka the Herb Bus, is a mobile free clinic and classroom, providing earth-based care to underserved communities. In addition to offering clinical services, we spread the health by sharing our model of healthcare with the larger herbal community through workshops and publications.

Though the Herb Bus travels coast to coast, we are hubbed in the Atlanta area. We are currently looking for an apprentice to assist both on the Bus and at Herbalista Headquarters in East Atlanta on Wednesday’s from 8am – 6pm. This apprenticeship will begin October 22nd, and requires a minimum 6-month commitment. We are accepting 2 apprentices for the current program.  There is no tuition fee.

This apprenticeship is a blend of responsibility and educational opportunity. You will be trained on and practice a variety of skills, from apothecary maintenance to clinical concerns. We are a small operation, and joining our crew will allow you to observe and participate in the nuts ‘n bolts of how we keep this healthcare initiative rolling. As a significant portion of this apprenticeship revolves around our free clinic project, we are looking to share this opportunity with applicants who hold a similar philosophy and wish to eventually service their own communities.

If you have passion for supporting and serving your neighbors (both people and plants), if you have a basic knowledge of herbal medicine, if you can dedicate your Wednesday’s to our mission and you are ready to make a commitment to our crew, please download the application at

We will be accepting applicants until September 15th.=

Thank you for your commitment to building a more vital and verdant community through herbalism. Viva la Herb Bus!
