Welcome to Our Herbal Heritage! I am Morgan, the writer and creator of OHH. I am a professional Horticultralist with an Associate’s Degree in Natural Resources Law Enforcement and a Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture. I became interested in herbalism during my first semester of college back in 2014 when my dendrology professor mentioned other uses for native trees outside of lumber. This website contains my studies and journeys over the years and it is something I wish to share with everyone.
I created this website with a goal in mind: to offer a resource that I wish I had when I started learning about herbalism and wild plants. Our Herbal Heritage is designed to be a free resource for both beginner and advanced herbalists and foragers. Here you will find information on common terminology, plant identification, history, and how to use the plants around you. Before OHH was what it is today, it was originally Not Your Typical Hippie. I decided to refine and rebrand my website in order to provide the top information in the herbal world.
I hope that Our Herbal Heritage becomes a great resource for you on your herbal journey. It is a journey that never ceases and something that we have inherited from our ancestors. Humans had plants from the beginning and it is time that we return to the relationship we once had with nature.
My love affair with nature is so deep that I am not satisfied with being a mere onlooker, or nature tourist. I crave a more real and meaningful relationship. The spicy teas and tasty delicacies I prepare from wild ingredients are the bread and wine in which I have communion and fellowship with nature, and with the Author of that nature.
