This is the baby stage of a project being dreamed into life by Desiree Thompson and Kelly McCarthy, herb workers in Philadelphia. We are envisioning a long term herbal medicine hub / community apothecary that includes free herbal medicine, partnering with local medicine makers and plant nerds to offer free workshops, partnering with local farmers to grow a row of herbs to donate, maybe even a free clinic someday. We’re starting with what is sustainable for us, working slowly, adjusting, listening, responding. There will be ways to plug into this project in the future, stay tuned.
