Ready to start your project?

Are you looking to offer healthcare to your community?

Do you have a vision to serve but need a little help with the nuts ‘n bolts of your project?  We’re here to help!

Herbalista has spent over a decade facilitating grassroots healthcare projects and would love to share that experience with you and your community group!  As helpful as the online resources and Herbalista Toolkit can be, we realize that there is also a need for more personalized support.

Our consultations are customized packages, tailored for your needs.  We offer Zoom (or phone) consultations, assistance with written materials (i.e. project coordination materials) and personalized workshops on specific topics. We look forward to helping you to articulate and develop the protocols for a successful and sustainable project.

We have experience working in the worlds of:

  • mobile clinics
  • pop-up first aid stations
  • herbal dispensaries
  • sliding scale work
  • community health fairs
  • foot care stations
  • community medicine making workshops
  • herbcare/ self-care stations
  • fundraising
  • and more…

Consultation Packages

Your consultation package will be custom formulated for your needs.  As we say at Herbalista – different strokes for different folks!

Our rates are offered along a sliding scale from $50 – $125 per hour for phone or Zoom appointments.  The rate is similar for editing assistance on written materials (service plans, clinical forms, dispensary forms, etc.)

These sessions can be scheduled per your needs either for start up assistance or even as an ongoing monthly mentorship.

Workshop Examples

Mobile Medicine: Buses and Carts and Bikes, oh my!

The Herbalista Free Clinic provides free herbal care to underserved communities via our mobile clinics, the Herb Bus, the Herb Cart, and the Dublin Herb Bike. By freeing herbal clinics from the confines of brick and mortar, we lower cost, expand treatment capacity, and reduce many of the barriers folks face when accessing care. This class will share the nuts ‘n’ bolts of how we keep the wheels on our clinics turning and help you plan a project of your own!   We will cover topics such as kit building, crew concerns, dispensary practicalities, legalities, and other important logistics.  We will also share loads of resources that have been helpful to us as we navigate this model of care.  This workshop can be expanded to cover multiple days, with add-on’s such as form template creation, kit building, etc

Maintaining a Botanical Dispensary

The Herbalista Health Network manages several clinics and serves hundreds each year.  We make a majority of the remedies we dispense and do our best to follow a set of guidelines we like to call Good Herbalista Practices (cGHP’s).  In this class we will look at many of the forms and procedures we find helpful for tracking, proper identification, and sanitation; we will go over dispensary practicalities from the point of view of both herbalist and patient;  and finally, we will facilitate a conversation regarding the current FDA regulations and other legalities we face as practicing herbalists.

Setting up an HerbCare Station

Herbal medicine can truly be a medicine by and for the people! One way to demystify herbal medicine and to encourage folks to practice herbal self-care is by setting up HerbCare Stations. We have installed HerbCare Stations (aka self-care stations) at community centers, co-housing facilities, occupations, shelters, and offices. We’ve pushed them around on carts and set-up pop-up HerbCare stations in city parks and at health fairs, festivals and gatherings. These mini-health stations offer folks a chance to care for themselves with herbs and vitamins. It is a chance to both heal and to learn!  In this workshop we will explore the many different considerations when creating an HerbCare Station, including herb choices, proper dispensing techniques, important safety and hygiene considerations, and more.  We will set up a station at the workshop so you get hands-on experience with how effective they can be.

Rates

Our rates are offered along a sliding scale from $50 – $125 per hour for phone or Zoom appointments.  The rate is similar for editing assistance on written materials (service plans, clinical forms, dispensary forms, etc.)

We use sliding scale to keep these consultations as open as possible to all members of the community.  Please choose anywhere you feel comfortable on the scale for our initial consultation.
