Medicinal Plants of Joshua Tree

My first lil plant zine is out! The botanical illustrations are by Molly Bella Moore (@mollybellamoore) and written by yours truly. You can find them at The Grateful Desert Herb Shop in Joshua Tree, CA, or The Hoof and the Horn and The Cactus Wren Bookshop in Yucca Valley, CA.

You can also mail order one by hollering my way ( or @wildgifts). I’ll also have an etsy shop link up soon where you can also grab one, along with some other most excellent high desert herbal remedies.
