About The Herb Hut

      The Herb Hut Free Clinic is a non-profit organization.  We offer free and mobile alternative medicine to underserved people in La Plata County, CO.  This rural county is home to many people who struggle with food insecurity, and many with no health insurance.  This is the demographic we serve.  We see many clients who don't have any access to healthcare whatsoever, and end up providing primary care for many.

      Our clinic on wheels travels where people need us the most, currently offering free herbal medicine and therapeutic massage.  We frequent soup kitchens, campgrounds for unhoused people, food distribution centers, mobile home parks, and local businesses.  Transportation is a major barrier to healthcare in our rural region, so we come to the people who need us.

 

We serve unhoused, immigrant, Indigenous, disabled, LGBTQIA+, and addicted communities.  We're currently holding two clinics a week, serving an average of 9-10 people per clinic.  

 

We alternate between Manna Soup Kitchen and the Purple Cliffs Campground in Durango every Thursday.  We hold two clinics a month specifically for Spanish-speakers, every other Tuesday at Amaya Natural Therapeutics in Durango. We hold one clinic in Bayfield per month, every fourth Monday at Pine River Shares.

      Alternative medicine is increasingly popular, but our nation's healthcare system makes it inaccessible to people who can't pay out of pocket.  We believe that healthcare and plant medicine are for everyone who wants them, and work to remedy this situation.

      We're funded by the generosity of grants, corporate sponsorships, and individuals like you.  Donate to make this possible!
