“As a folk herbalist I find myself seeking to articulate this craft, this art, this inherited tradition to others, in different contexts, and it is not always easy. This writing gives me strength and hope and validates those of us in the margins of hierarchal herbalism, equalizing the community.”
–Sandra Lory, Mandala Botanicals

“I just went through my first issue of Plant Healer magazine and I am incredibly impressed by the depth of knowledge and information and the breadth of voices and traditions represented in the beautiful pages! i have explored many different herbal periodicals and have grown up around plants and gardens all my life-but this magazine truly is a huge cut above the rest. As a root woman I appreciate how the knowledge moves from preparation and applications to possible spiritual uses of the plants discussed, and as a mom I love the way that children are included in the work! Thank you for an all around fantastic resource at an amazingly reasonable price!”
–Miss Bri, Milagro Roots

“I’m LOVING it! The layout is incredible. The time it must take just to do one of those beautiful pages… and there are so many of them!!!! I just want to curl up all day & read & read & read!”
–Rosalee de la Forêt, Methow Valley Herbs

Cultivating a Culture of Healing by Jesse Wolf Hardin

“Plant Healer is right up there with National Geographic in its use of color & natural landscapes and plants. A true feast for the eyes!  There is a huge amount of information shared within its pages.  It takes me a good 2 months to make read everything within its covers in an intentional fashion.”
-Phyllis Light
