How was it created?
Tilia magazine was created to unite practitioners of Western Herbal Medicine in a safe space where they can share, learn, discuss and develop as practitioners. The origins of Tilia magazine date from 2015, when its founder Laura Carpenter noticed that, while the UK has an Academic journal on Western Herbal Medicine and several publications available to members of the various professional associations, there was a distinct lack of a publication that could transcend the varying organisations and groups active in the UK and Ireland.
How is the magazine funded?
Tilia magazine is a non profit venture. The magazine was given a grant of £500 from the NIMH Education and research fund* to start the project.
