Opening early spring 2017

The Well is a place to come home to ourselves and to plants. We celebrate and respect the deep medicine of the herbal plant world, and make this nourishment accessible through nutritious and affordable everyday drinks and food. We do this in service of healing and education for ourselves, our beloved communities and our at-risk planet. Join us for an elixir, a wellness shot, a hearty soup, or come to meet a friend, launch a movement, or learn about herbal medicine.

The Well  is committed to community building, healing, sustainability, and justice and holds these values central to all business practices, ingredient sourcing, and social/civic engagement.

The Well  is housed in the East Bay Community Space, an inclusive, non-market based social space for cultural events, classes, workshops, and performances in North Oakland. 



Things are moving along. They are taking more time and money than we anticipated, but we staying strong and clear in birthing this vision. It is exciting to see things change daily. The plumber and electricians are doing their thang. The woodworkers are beginning to build our shelving, tables, and counters. We are choosing colors and lighting, ordering equipment and supplies, and finding the right furniture to make the space feel welcoming, healing, urban, and fun. If you have any specific skills or materials you would like to contribute to the project, please contact us are
