Welcome to the San Jose Chapter of the Holistic Moms Network!!

Holistic Moms Network is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization connecting parents who are interested in holistic health and green living. We encourage moms to trust their instincts, parent from the heart, use their innate sense of what is best for their children, live in balance with the Earth, and learn about the pros and cons of all healthcare and parenting options.

There are over 100 chapters of the Holistic Moms Network throughout the United States and Canada. If San Jose, CA isn’t your hometown, please check here to see what chapter is close to you.

The San Jose, CA Chapter monthly meetings are held every 1st Tuesday of the month, 7pm,  at the Cambrian Branch Library, 1780 Hillsdale Avenue, San Jose, CA . Our meetings range from topics on health, parenting, food, environment, and just having fun and getting to know each other better!
