Herbal Highway’s 25th Anniversary!
The Herbal Highway turns 25 in 2022! Join us in celebrating a quarter century’s worth of free herbal knowledge on the airwaves and in podcast.
On the show, we have some special programming this year. The third Tuesday of each month we’re airing an episode of The Herbal Highway from our early years that hasn’t been heard since it originally aired! Catch these vintage episodes during our normal broadcast time or on The Herbal Highway’s Podcast.
We are also offering Herbal Highway merch for the first time in the show’s history! Pick up limited-edition t-shirts, totes, stickers, and mugs here on the Blue Otter site. And make sure to tell other Herbal Highway fans to scoop them up while they’re available!
With each merchandise purchase, you are helping us raise funds for one of our favorite Bay Area organizations.
Sogorea Te’ Land Trust is an urban Indigenous women-led land trust that facilitates the return of Indigenous land to Indigenous people. Through the practices of rematriation, cultural revitalization, and land restoration, Sogorea Te’ calls on Native and non-native peoples to heal and transform the legacies of colonization, genocide, and patriarchy and to do the work our ancestors and future generations are calling us to do.
What is the Herbal Highway?
The Herbal Highway is a weekly radio show that is dedicated to providing free herbal information to the public.
