Rootwork Herbals is the love, work, and play of community herbalist, Amanda David.

The Rootwork Herbals community has grown in include an herbal product line available at Bramble, herbal health consultations, a BIPOC free clinic, educational offerings such as the People’s Medicine School and Woke Without the Work, a BIPOC community garden, and the facilitation of BIPOC sanctuaries at various herb/agriculture conferences.
The garden is a sanctuary for folks to come together to connect with the Earth, the Plants, the Community, and with themselves. The garden has communal beds for all to freely enjoy, tend, and harvest, as well as individual beds for folks to steward as they like. The garden also has a community herb drying shed, as well as a lending library of herb books and tools.
