Red Root is a community space for people to gather and engage around traditional herbal medicine and medicinal food.  Located in Sebastopol, we support the abundant community of herbal medicine makers and medicinal food crafters by providing a fully-licensed commercial kitchen, teaching space, herbal pharmacy, and accessible low-cost herbal clinic.  We aim to create social change by offering services that put the medicine back into the people’s hands.  

Red Root is a place to gather, learn, and heal.
