Open call for drawings of medicinal plants!
For a practical compendium for natural healing practices to be compiled in a printed and bound print publication including gardens, gardeners, healing practitioners, and a wide-range of do-it-yourself guides (beer brewing, salve-crafting, tea and oil infusion, tinctures compresses).

Plant drawings will be used as a resource, so accuracy and actual likeness to specific plants is somewhat desired — on the other hand, artistic interpretations are welcome and encouraged. Ideally, it would be great to include three separate diagrams; one of the whole plant, one for the flower and one for the root.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
