Seems like a solid little guide.

What just blew my mind was finding this zine again as a 30yo because of my interest in the Practical Withes Almanac, when I *still have* my coarsely photocopied copy I got from my local Infoshop in high school. This website is even listed inside. I can't say I've done more than skim through most of this many years ago, but apparently I knew that at some point I'd be more practically interested in this kind of thing. I've already got seed packs for a lot of the listed plants, because I've gone hard on gardening this past year and am going to implement a tea garden next season. Just.... the world is small. Or, I already knew aspects of who I was in high school and it's just taken over a decade to fully embrace them.

Very good for people really new to herbal medicine.
