We are an Asheville area health collective aiming to make herbal medicine and other alternative modalities of healing accessible while helping folks feel empowered to take healthcare into their own hands & hearts.
The Hawthorn Community Herb Collective (HCHC) was birthed by a group of herbalists who recognized the need for more accessible health care in a climate where such basic needs are not easily attainable. We strive to be a community hub offering tools to build and support wellness resiliency and health justice through herbal care and other alternative modalities of health, healing & education in Asheville, NC and surrounding area.
As a group of herbalists we believe in the power of plants as medicine for the people, and medicine that empowers us rather than leaves us dependent. We believe serving the under-served and offering support in times of crisis is vital to keeping a community strong. We believe bridging gaps among communities will aid in raising us up while constructing stronger systems for resiliency. Health care is a basic human right and offering herbal medicine in our community and beyond can help fill the spaces where this right is void.
We are currently working to make medicines to provide for the community during the COVID-19 Pandemic and distribute via mutual aid organizations local to the Asheville area.
