Upcoming Issues

In 2009 I created the first issue of Herbal Roots zine, unsure of where I would go with it, only armed with the knowledge that herbal learning for kids was hard to find and if I wanted to teach my own kids about it, I would need to write the book, so to speak.

Over the next 10 years, Herbal Roots zine continued to grow and change as I grew more confident and realized more sections were needed in each issue. I updated several of the back issues to accommodate those additions and continue to update as time permits.

I have wanted to write about endangered species plants but due to the risk of them being over harvested, I have held back. For the past several years I have contemplated devoting a year to them so that I could help to bring awareness about their plight.

In 2019, in honor of over 10 years of issues, I will be focusing on “at risk” and endangered species herbs and how to properly cultivate them to help restore them to our natural environments. If you want to get a jump start on growing them, here is the list (not in order):

American Ginseng
Black Cohosh
Bloodroot
Blue Cohosh
False Unicorn Root
Goldenseal
Osha
Pleurisy Root
Solomon’s Seal
Trillium
True Unicorn Root
Wild Yam

Some changes are coming about at Herbal Roots zine. As we are heading into year 11, I really want to be able to reach more kids and offer more help to parents and teachers who are struggling to teach their kids about herbs. Because of this, I am restructuring Herbal Roots zine. As you will notice, ‘subscriptions’ to the zine are going away and I will be offering in its place, bundles of issues, beginning with the Native Medicinal Plants bundle. I will be reworking the issues and combining them into bundles for those who are new to herbs and unsure where to start. Over the course of the next year these bundles will become available as they are reformatted, along with lots of great exclusives, bonuses and discounts.

This is not the end of new issues of Herbal Roots zine! Once I have reformatted the bundles, I will start offering new bundles with new issues. My hopes in this restructuring is to make Herbal Roots zine easier to use for teaching kids about herbs.

Some bundles that will be available in the future are:

  • Brand New to Herbs
  • The Next Step
  • Invasive Plant Medicine
  • Kitchen Herbs (Part 1: Kitchen Spices, Part 2: Food as Medicine)
  • The Herbs in Your Backyard (Part 1: Weeds, Part 2: Trees & Shrubs)
  • In the Garden (Part 1: Herb Garden, Part 2: Flower/Pollinator Garden, Part 3: Fruits & Veggies)
  • Cold and Flu Herbs
  • Adaptogenic Herbs
  • Herbal First Aid
  • Herbs for Calm and Relaxation
  • Herbs for Teens
  • Low Dose and Short Term Use Herbs
  • Medicinal Mushrooms

Each bundle with come with their own extras and companion guides, videos and more.

Stay tuned, we’ll be rolling out our very first bundle shortly!
