“Plant Healer is the only publication I’ve seen in my long career that captures the wild diversity of herbalism in North America.”  –Paul Bergner

“Plant Healer is the most attractive journal I have ever had the pleasure to view.”  –David Winston

The Plant Healer Compendium is a sampling of Plant Healer Magazine’s 2017 articles, 445 info-packed b&w pages by 30 authors, selected from the year’s over 1200 color digital pages tailored to the herbalist student and experienced practitioner.  They represent over 20 columns and departments, covering everything from history and plant lore to materia medica, medicine making, and clinical skills.

Previously, each Fall we would print the entire four issues in a giant 2 volume set, and sold them only to existing magazine subscriber members.  But lately, the issues have grown so large and printing costs so high, that it is no longer affordable.  Instead, every year now we will be releasing a special Compendium book featuring an exciting sampling of full-length Plant Healer articles.  And these Compendiums will be sold to the general public as well as to our regular subscribers, providing a taste of what our readers so enjoy, in a softcover volume that you can hold in  your hands.

Our treasured Plant Healer authors are among the deepest thinking teachers, healers, conservationists, growers, and artists, and visionaries of our time.  Sections on herbal traditions contribute to our evolving story, radical herbalism and diversity address issues vital to the survival of folk herbalism, and topics like constitutions, actions, cultivation, and botany, keep the project rooted in practical tools and usable techniques.  Here is an opportunity to be entertained and enriched, while learning more about healing not only our bodies and spirits, but our culture and the land.
