What is Tilia Magazine?

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.

 

Where does the subscription money go?

  • Web hosting
  • Domain registration
  • Publishing software
  • Any additional funds are held for special projects (or just in case something goes wrong and we need to get it fixed)

 

What is the cost of subscription?

£18 a year. (Approx $23 USD, $31 AUD, and 22 Euro – subject to current exchange rates)

 

How many issues are there?

There are four quarterly editions of the magazine.
They are published as follows:
Spring – 1st March
Summer – 1st June
Autumn – 1st September
Winter – 1st December

 

How is the magazine published?

The magazine is published online on the dates above. The magazine can be downloaded from this website or received by email.

 

Who can contribute to the magazine?

Any subscriber can contribute to the magazine, and as part of the subscription process each subscriber must pledge to send at least one item to the magazine per year. This is to provide a wide range of articles and promote community.

 

 

*The NIMH education & research fund was launched on 30th October 1973 and registered as a charity. It set a target of £250,000 to raise to fund training of herbal practitioners and research into herbal remedies. Fred Fletcher Hyde was the original Chair and the board or trustees included Albert Priest & Albert Orbell & Nalda Gosling (who is still a member today). Despite many fund raising events enough money was not raised for the hoped for school and research department. The money was therefore invested and administered by a board of trustees. Any herbalist can apply for funding by submitting a bid you do not have to be a NIMH member. Two successful bids were the Preston Training Clinic at UCLAN and the initial set up for the NIMH journal. Further information can be obtained from Paul Hambly (paul@hamblys.net).
