Announcing 2 New Books For Herbalists & Plant Lovers THE PLANT HEALER ANNUAL

YES, the rumors are true! If we didn’t have enough to do before the September conference, we had to add production of our first 2 Sweet Medicine Press books to our busy list.… feeling compelled to respond to the plaintive pleas of our Plant Healer Magazine readers! Copies will be available at the Traditions In Western Herbalism Conference beginning Sept. 15th, and discounted mail order copies can be pre-ordered now by subscribers by logging in to your personal Membership Page on the Plant Healer website.


While there is much to love about the tree-free, easy to navigate digital format, there’s admittedly lots to be said for actual physical hard copy that can be read off of the glaring screen, handled and placed in an honored spot on the shelf. Given that paper copies of our up to 200 page long color issues would be ridiculously expensive to produce and ship, we’re committing to print for you a yearly Plant Healer Annual instead… a perfect-bound 8.5×11” softcover book in affordable Black & White, that’s well over 600 pages long!

The first of these Plant Healer Annuals contains full length versions of all of the articles, art and photos from the magazine’s first year, 2010/2011, and in affordable black and white. Featuring columns and articles by many of the leading voices in folk herbalism and wildcrafting –– Paul Bergner, Matthew Wood, Aviva Romm, Kiva Rose, Phyllis Light, Samuel Thayer, 7Song, Rosemary Gladstar, Jim McDonald, Kristine Brown, Virginia Adi, Todd Caldecott, Sean Donahue, John Gallagher, Rosalee de la Forêt, Robin Rose Bennett, Ananda Wilson, Christa Sinadinos, Margi Flint, Katja Swift, Dale Bellisfield, Susan Belsinger, Jane Valencia and Henriette Kress.
$39 ea. (plus $15 Shipping) to Subscribers

“This is the first publication I’ve seen in my 38-year career that captures the wild diversity of herbalism in North America while still reflecting excellence and high-level practice… for the practicing herbalist from entry level to advanced, inclusively.”
-Paul Bergner


As helpful as the Annuals will be, some of you can’t help but wish there was a full color book with at least a portion of the original artwork and posters for herbalists. It is for you, that we have also worked late into the nights putting together a perfect bound volume featuring over 60 full page sized color illustrations from the first year of the magazine, including paintings, drawings and sculptures by Joanna Powell Colbert, Madeline von Foerster, Lauren Raine and Rebecca Altman, and art as well as the many posters and text designed and written by PH coeditor and copublisher Jesse Wolf Hardin. The 8.5×11” pages can be carefully removed for framing and hanging, so you may want two copies… one for dismembering and displaying, and the other to keep whole. The Art of Plant Healer is sure to make an especially appealing gift for friends and family as well.
Subscribers: $25 ea., NonSubscribers: $35 ea. (plus $15 Shipping)

The Art Of Plant Healer will be available to nonsubscribers in mid-September, and those of you who are subscribers can pre-order your discounted copies now by logging in to your Member Page at

“Plant Healer is the most beautiful magazine I’ve ever seen, bar none. It’s right up there with National Geographic in its use of color and natural landscapes and plants. A true feast for the eyes!”

-Phyllis Light
