Maine Herbal Gathering

We are excited to share with you the first volume of In Relation with Plant Beings, a zine by the Maine* Herbal Gathering Community. Inside you’ll find a variety of offerings including how to collect and use acorns, poetic writings about plants, recipes, drawings, and so much more.

The Maine Herbal Gathering Community is working to decolonize the ways we connect with plant medicine, and we will continue to foster spaces for open conversation among plant lovers on how we can better embed this work throughout our organizing & our herbal initiatives.

We hope this zine speaks to everyone who loves the plants as much as we do.

*what is now referred to as “Maine” is part of the traditional territory known as Wabanaki

Our 2020 Contributors – Marc Bubar, Steph Cesario, Christine Clark, deanna dematteo, Denise Despirito, Brighid Doherty, Lili Elena, Anna Goeff, aurora linnea, Heléna Melone, Landon Newton, Heather Daniels Pusey, Melanie Rose Scofield, Evan Singh, Susan Staley, Suzanne Belle Stone, Henry Sweets, Jillian Twisla.

In Relation with Plant Beings Zine

The Maine Herbal Community is rich in knowledge and connection to the land and plants of the Wabanaki territory we inhabit. Our aim is for a printed zine to become an accessible platform this year and onward to uplift voices in our community, and become a tangible piece of art and beauty especially in this year of digital fatigue.


Our zine will begin to ship the first week of December. Given delays in delivery due to the holidays, we cannot promise any specific delivery date, but will let you know as soon as the zine has shipped. Thanks so much for your support!
