I’ve been enjoying myherbcorner. From what I can tell Brigitte is German Austrian, living in NZ. It’s lovely seeing the European tradition of herbalism being talked about (as it’s different than the NZ, UK, and US herbalism which is where most of our NZ knowledge of non-native medicines comes from). She has a wiki too, worth checking out.
Not herbal as such, but a Te Wai Pounamu/Mainland blog! (that’s the South Island for international readers). Letter from Wetville is Sandra’s writing on life on the West Coast. Gardening, daily life and political commentary on related topics, she’s also been doing some thoughtful posts lately on NZ women’s history.
