Jocelyn Boreta bio

Jocelyn Boreta is an activist and herbalist committed to cultivating health equity through the empowerment of indigenous knowledge and self-healing communities.

"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."

For over 4-years Jocelyn has offered weekly, free, bilingual wellness workshops at community gardens and Latinx health centers throughout Sonoma County. She is an herbalist at integrative health clinic, Farmacopia, and co-founder of The Botanical Bus: Bilingual Mobile Herb Clinic.

Her community activism has roots in 10-years working as Program Director of the Global Exchange Fair Trade Stores, in partnership with indigenous women in Guatemala, Peru, and India to sustain cultural integrity and livelihood.

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.
