Herbalism is the "People's Medicine," a skill historically and necessarily accessible to all regardless of one's class, status, gender, race, or financial situation. Radical herbalism is "root" herbalism, inextricably linked to and drawing sustenance from this lineage of personal empowerment and insistent natural healing. And not just the healing of bodies, but of our psyches and spirits, community and culture, immediate environs and global ecology.

This new book called Radical Herbalism is the work of 30 socially and environmentally active herbalists, addressing issues of increasing importance to a new generation of plant healers, and providing the tools for preserving, growing, informing, equipping, and invigorating the herbal field... including topics such as:
* Herbal Access
* Street Medic Skills
Festival Medicine
Setting up a Free Clinic
Volunteering outside the U.S.
Social Justice, Herbal Justice
The Right to Practice
* Regulation & Licensing Strategies
* Herbal Activism
Diversity in Herbalism
Transgender Competency for Herbalists
Rewilding Our Selves, Herbalism, & Earth
Guerrilla Gardening & Greening The City
Cannabis Synergism
Weedwyfery and Community Herbalism
