The Herbarist

The Herbarist

Our premier publication, The Herbarist, is an annual journal packed with informative articles, beautiful images, and fascinating global content.

Written and published by The Herb Society of America since 1935, The Herbarist is one of the nation's most established horticultural publications and continues to inspire, expand, and disseminate our members' knowledge of the latest in herbal information. The Herbarist is made possible through the efforts of a collective of HSA members - the talented researchers, writers, and editors who develop content; the generous supporters who sponsor the publication and buy advertising; and, the discerning readers who value vetted herbal information by subject matter experts.
