Looking to expand your knowledge as a green witch? Research, read, and study using our mega GIANT list of green witch books and resources. Find books, blogs, and YT channels on green witchcraft, herbalism, foraging and wildcrafting, trees, fairies, folklore, and more!

First, What is a Green Witch?

Is a green witch a wise person with a green face? None of the green witches that I know of. A green witch is someone who practices magic in the most natural way possible. Often this involves the witch getting outdoors and casting spells in the woods, in the garden, and other natural settings. They incorporate herbs, roots, flowers, trees, rocks, the landscape, and wildlife into their tradition. A green witch prefers to be outside as much as possible. Their wand is a fallen oak branch. Their altar is a tree stump. Well, you get the point.

If you’d like to learn more about practicing green witchcraft, we have a HUGE list of resources here. But truly, let Mother Earth be your ultimate teacher.
