Rosemary Gladstar

Join Rosemary Gladstar as she invites herbal elders to share the stories of their journey into the lush world of plants in these Inner-Views.


“It is the elders who have kept the teachings of herbalism alive through generations of time, the wise ones who taught the children how to find the plants, how to speak with them, and how to make medicine from them. This lineage, though weakened, still lives on, and our hearts hunger for this connection to our traditions.” ~ Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health (© 2008 Storey Publications)
