Text from the zine:

“For hundreds of thousands of years, we crafty human beings have been using plants with great efficacy to feed and heal ourselves, and to fashion tools in various forms. Despite this, as urban (civilized) humans have become further and further removed from their landbases, the knowledge of edible and utilitarian wild plants has become nearly extinct, and the belief that plants are useless as medicine has become commonplace. Such ignorance- disturbingly universal and constantly perpetuated by Western industry and
science- is unforgivable and easily remedied. With that in mind, this zine is the first in a series of publications written to inspire anarchists and non-radical folks alike to reconnect
with the amazing world of plants. Hopefully, upon reading this and subsequent works, the reader will never again look down upon that dandelion breaking through the concrete as a mere weed, or the clover and mallow overtaking grass lawns as nuisances.”
