Resources and Links

I love sharing resources! Here are links to herbalists, herb and supplies sources, foraging sites, relevant organizations, and blogs and websites with good information. The theme, of course, is herbs and plants, healing, foraging, loving the earth, taking care of ourselves. And sometimes something just for fun.

There is no particular order under each heading, it may eventually become alphabetized. (I am still adding to this page, so you may want to check back to see what else I’ve put on here.)

If you would like to be linked up with my website, please contact me!
