Last Wednesday of the Month

Mercy Community Church
1026 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE., Atlanta, GA 30308
Share the health with your neighbors at Herbalista Health Network's health fair; free and open to the public, gate opens at 11! This Health Fair combines free health services, health education, and networking opportunities. Join us as we build community through herbalism!
Please come dressed weather appropriate: the fair is both indoors and out :) and tomorrow looks like a bit of rain!
This month our fair is relocating to Mercy Community Church! Their center is just a little further down the Ponce corridor, in the basement level of the Druid Hills Presbyterian Church, across the street from the Majestic Diner. This radical community is the weekly host of the Harriet Tubman Foot Care Clinic and is dedicated to building a more loving community through action. “If you have come to help me, you’re wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” A big shout-out to 368 Ponce for having hosted us for these many years. Thank you!

HISTORY OF THE FAIR:
In February of 2013 the Herb Bus set up in the back garden at 368 Ponce to offer a once monthly free herbal clinic. We served the small community who shared the space, activists and artists alike. Over the years it became apparent that we could reach even more folks if we came together in a larger community effort. More practitioners joined the cause, volunteers came to assist with tea stations and logistics, & educators came to facilitate workshops. This monthly fair is a place we hope folks can get what they need, have a chance to contribute what they can, and we can weave a stronger and more resilient web of community!
