Our Grandmother’s used their native plants, ate nourishing weeds and mushrooms in the spring and healed their selves with plant medicine when they were sick. Native Plants provided their only medicine. Jennifer at Community Herbalist is carrying this knowledge forward.
Jennifer completed a three year clinical internship program at the Ohlone School for Herbal Studies in Berkeley, California in 2006 , a Ten Month Advanced Apprenticeship with Matthew Wood AHG in 2007, and is currently the Medicine Making Teacher at the Ohlone Center for Herbal Studies in Berkeley. She enjoys working with the senior population and volunteers at the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic for women with cancer. Herbal education, community interaction and empowerment are at the heart of Jennifer’s enthusiasm.
“Helping teach my community how to help themselves stay well is my passion,” she said. “The joy of western herbs is that anyone can learn some basics about herbs to help themselves.”
Jennifer blends her personal experience, clinical experience and teaching knowledge in her private practice “Community Herbalist”, located at 3798 Grand Avenue, Suite 2, Oakland, CA. 94610.
