Free Clinic Training

Close-up on the 2oz tincture kit.

The Herb Cart was created in 2015 by Herbalista as a way to get herbal preparations in and around the Atlanta community. It is a great set-up to fine tune your clinical skills. The Herb Cart has a specific set of remedies in stock, which trains you to be flexible and find new ways to use different herbal preparations. The Herb Cart was passed on to Fleur + Forage in the Spring of 2022. The first Fleur + Forage Herb Cart was set-up on March 31st, 2022 at Mercy Community Church.

The next Free Clinic training will take place on March 8th, 9th and 10th, 2024. On March 8th, we will meet from 6-9PM over GoogleMeets. On March 9th and 10th, we will meet in person at the Herbal Studio from 10AM-5PM.

Over the weekend, we will go through the Fleur + Forage Free Clinic manual, covering the different protocols and types of set-ups we may encounter and how they support an integrative approach on both the emotional and physical well being of the clients we see.  Sunday afternoon will be dedicated to running practice scenarios and familiarizing yourself with the herbal remedies on the Herb Cart.
