The Botanical Bus: Bilingual Mobile Herb Clinic takes community-based action for health equity. We are driven by the proven success of the self-healing community model in which holistic health is empowered by the people, for the people. We meet our Latinx and Indigenous clients where there are- at vineyard worksites and family service center hubs- to provide upstream, culturally relevant health services including massage, acupuncture, somatic therapy, diabetes prevention and care, clinical nutrition and herbalism. Our programs, led by Promotora CHA’s, include Farmworkers Clinics and Wellness Workshops.
In 2022 The Botanical Bus: Bilingual Mobile Herb Clinic will:
- provide 864 clients with 2,592 direct integrative health services through 36 Farmworker Clinics
- reach 1080 community members through 45 wellness workshops
- distribute 1000 mutual-aid herbal care kits to farmworkers and their families
