Plants Gone Wild: Redefining Ethical Wildcrafting

This brilliant zine presents a critique of wildcrafting (i.e. harvesting medicinal plants and herbs from the wild) that comes from a perspective rooted in decolonization and indigenous solidarity. It asks what ethical wildcrafting looks like for herbalists who are also settlers in North America. It presents problems with even the most strict ethical standards commonly circulated among herbalists, and it also offers some suggestions about how to get to know and care for your bioregion and stands of medicinal plants. An important part of the perspective in this zine is presented in a guest article by a Native American woman who teaches herbalism at a school in Northern California. Highly recommended!
