Edible Weeds & Pioneer Plants of Southern Africa

  • We at Aether Herbalist & Apothecary believe in the ideology that knowledge does not belong to one person but rather a collective community.

    Through this spreading of knowledge we can pass on incredible awareness of our environments, and the many wonderful plants & mushroom that inhabit them. We have created a diverse array of resources to help teach about herbalism, mushrooms as medicine, edible plants & how to identify them and many more.

    ​We genuinely believe that this knowledge should be free and as such we have all of our reading material available for download at no cost.

    However if you prefer a solid book we have printing options available - the funds you pay will go towards the costs around printing the books, we do not take a profit for this at all. 

    We truly hope these books bring joy and knowledge to all.
