A Free Community Apothecary for Black Folks in Philly

The Philly Herb Hub provides free herbs and free workshops through a sustainable mutual aid network with local growers, medicine makers, and herb enthusiasts.
Further in the future, we'd love to open a free clinic.

We are not a business or a non-profit. We are a handful of folks who love herbs, and are aiming to practice anti-capitalism in real time.

For the Herb Hub, sustainability means keeping herbs and medicine accessible as a consistent practice--so that it is able to exist as a reliable and stable resource, for as long as possible.
