Fireweed #2: A Zine of Grassroots Radical Herbalism and Wild Foods Connecting with Kids and Family Life
by Jess Krueger
Like its subtitle says, Fireweed is about getting kids (and friends and your family) in touch with herbalism and wild plants in a radical sense. Issue two is a massive 67-page collection of essays and interviews, reviews and articles. Some of the features include: a piece on harvesting wild plants by Fireweed's editor, Jess; an article on the magic of chamomile; an interview with Herbal Feral Family; a piece on Magical Arts; a piece on the healing properties of plantains; advice on herbal baths; writing on doulas; Traci Picard's "Holistic Support for the new mama in a scrubbled up world," and much, much more! This zine is a real treasure trove of wisdom, advice, and inspiration for living a life closer to the land. We endorse Fireweed with a massive thumbs up!
