A Living Library! What could be better?

Unlike paper books, which can get stagnant and need updates, this online resource is like no other. Our materia medica members get to listen to videos and review text on a large library of over 90 plants that is constantly being added to. Every month or two, you will receive updates on what's new for members. All information is curated by Nicole Telkes and includes her own take on the medicinal uses of the plants, growing, harvesting considerations, and even substitutes. Take a peek!
