Resources and Links

I love sharing resources! Here are links to herbalists, herb and supplies sources, foraging sites, seed and plant sources, 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!

Drawings of ROOTS of plants: The drawings, their analysis and descriptions were done by three researchers at the Pflanzensoziologisches Institute, Klagenfur. The scans of the original drawings, done by Univ.- Prof. M. E. Lichtenegger covers a wide variety of species ranging from agricultural crops to associated disinherited, but also natural vegetation, from orchids to alpine shrubs and trees. The drawings are those of the rooting systems of individual species carefully isolated from their environment, and drawn in detail.
