Community Services & Offerings

The Roots
Of Community Health Herbal Network.
Our work is rooted in empowering our communities.
These projects are some of the rootlets of our network.


Wild Violet Underground free community herbal + wellness care in The South/Mobile
Wild Violet Underground organizes and provides free community health services, free and sliding scale wellness education, and mobile pop-up style free clinics upon request supporting water protectors, earth defenders, and warriors against all land and resource colonization.  Wild Violet Underground also facilitates pop-up style wellness spaces for marginalized communities and queer and trans communities upon request and is also locally available for smaller kitchen/living room style shares, treatment sessions, and consultations.  Contact us at wildvioletunderground@gmail.com


Community Roots - free clinic held on stolen Muscogee & Katuah territory in so-called "Atlanta, Ga" 
Community Roots is a pop-up free-clinic that provides herbal medicine as well as health and wellness education to marginalized communities in the Atlanta area.  This free herb clinic currently offers herbal resources, one-on-one herbal consultations, herbal tea, and free hot meals for youth and volunteers monthly at Lost-N-Found Youth, a queer youth center that provides safer space and resources for queer youth without housing.  In addition to the clinics, the Community Roots team stocks a Self-Care Station with vitamins and herbal remedies that are left at the center and available for people to access at any time.  Community Roots aims to empower those they work with and their collective members through education about herbalism, healing, and wellness.  Contact us at community.roots.clinic@gmail.com


The Pawpaw - community apothecary held on stolen land, traditionally shared as hunting territory of Muscogee, Euchee, Shawnee, Chahta, Chickasaw, Katuah, and Seminole peoples, in so-called "middle TN"
The Pawpaw serves as a community medicine chest and apothecary for the large queer community in rural Tennessee, providing free medicine and health services for queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, whether they live in the area, or are just passing through the gayborhood.  Queers in the country often times face systematic social barriers that can make it easier to find a local organized hate group, than  it is to find compassionate, indiscriminate, quality health care.  This can be especially true for rural trans people and queer people of color, trans women, poor queers and queers with chronic health conditions.  Although herbal medicines can not always replace what necessary modern medicine provides for many, The Pawpaw helps minimize the community's sole reliance on an industrial healthcare system that prioritizes profit and lacks queer, trans, and LGBTQIA+ patient competency.


Middle Tennessee Med Shed - 1st aid station + free community clinic held on stolen land, traditionally shared as hunting territory of Muscogee, Euchee, Shawnee, Chahta, Chickasaw, Katuah, and Seminole peoples, in so-called "middle TN"
The Med Shed was built several years back, during a work party at a southern, rural, queer community land project and educational center that provides safer space for queers, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, all tucked into the hills of middle TN.  The Med Shed operates as a year round first aid station and a free herbal and wellness clinic during gatherings and work parties, offering health care, first aid, herbal consultations, massage, skill shares, and tasty herbal teas for queers, by queers.


Katherine Smith Scholarship Program - based out of Black Mesa, AZ- Dine Territory
Supporting Indigenous, Black, and Brown leadership in health justice movements.  This scholarship program is an effort to adjust some of the social disparities we see in the world by removing some of the barriers that limit Indigenous participation in important inter-generational healing work and community health care projects.  The Katherine Smith Scholarship Program aims to provide opportunities to re-cultivate or nourish care giving skills for Indigenous people who are interested in providing care within their communities.  Funds that are raised for the Katherine Smith Scholarship Program are used to support Dine teachers and travel expenses for Dine people to access these offerings.  We are also accepting donations of long-distance learning courses and books to add to the collection.  To contribute to the Katherine Smith Scholarship Program please contact us at katherinesmithscholarship@gmail.com
