Giveaway Monday – HRz 2013 Wall Calendar


This week we are giving away one of our 2013 wall calendars! This calendar makes a great companion to Herbal Roots zine with beautiful watercolored paintings of each month’s herb and information about that herb.


The calendar folds out to 11 x 17, is printed on heavy, glossy card stock paper and is wire spiral bound. Calendars are printed in the USA. To see all 12 pages from the calendar, head on over to our calendar page.


I have such a great time every year making theses calendars. I start by compiling a list of what I want to teach about for the following year, considering growing and harvest times. Most of the herbs I write about I have growing in my own gardens or woods behind our house and if not, I usually have access through nearby friends or wild places.


I love to go and sit with the plants, just taking them in, examining them as closely as possible and photographing them from all angles for later reference. I often have the live plant sitting in a vase next to me as I’m working on the painting as well.

    I would love one of your lovely calendars to grace my kitchen wall. This would add to my library of subtle gentle information I put in front of my daughters. I know there has been a connection when I hear them explaining to their peers what plants are good for…. (big smile).

    Hello, I’m three years old my name is Rowan. My grandmother helps me read about herbs and plant them. We have bees too so I’m interested in the ones that the bees can use to make our honey taste so good. Thank You~Rowan
