Herbal Freedom School volume 1

Herbal Freedom School volume 1

This “freedom session” is a smaller version of the Herbal Freedom School webpage which is part queerherbalism.blogspot.com. It is a compilation of links, books, and articles about herbalism and other holistic healing modalities that complement it or intersect with it. It is an attempt to make herbal and holistic knowledge more accessible (again). 

The Herbal Freedom page and zines are not meant to be exhaustive or definitive. They are a few steps on the revolutionary journey. There's a lot out there. *Please verify by cross-referencing with other sources and remember there is no one way to come at this healing work and for this reason there's a lot of seemingly contradictory information. Hopefully this will be a catalyst for folks to begin/continue on their path and even collaborate with others within the movement.
