The Botanical Bus, with Jocelyn Boreta | Tea Talks with Jiling

Jocelyn Boreta is a community organizer, herbalist and the granddaughter of an Indigenous Farmworker. She is committed to cultivating health equity through culturally centered care. Before co-founding the Botanical Bus, Jocelyn organized weekly bilingual, bicultural wellness workshops with Cultivando para Salud at LandPaths Bayer Farm and worked as a clinical herbalist at Farmacopia for four years. Her activism has roots in 10-years working as Program Director of the Global Exchange Fair Trade Stores. Jocelyn holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Anthropology from University of California Santa Barbara and certification in herbalism from the California School of Herbal Studies. She believes that “Herbalism is activism. It shows us that we are connected to the earth, that we know how to heal ourselves, our families and our communities with the plants that grow around us.”

Jiling and Jocelyn discuss:

  • Community as medicine, health as celebration
  • Planting seeds of self-care through seasonal health
  • Creating healthcare equity, access, and inclusion with culturally-centered services
  • Food as medicine
  • “Todos somos medicina” (We are all medicine”)
  • “Si sanas tu, sano yo” (”If you heal, I heal”)
  • Radical love
  • The importance of stress and sleep support; starting with the nervous system
  • The healing harvest
