e know how it is...sometimes you want to unplug the technology and get back to basics....

Or maybe you're the type that likes digging in musty attics, searching for old fashioned things, and wondering why they ever went out of style....

Or you've longed for the "Good Old Days" of living, and wondering why we still don't use those wise old ways of living.....

We've done the same thing and that's how FOLK WISDOM was born.

I've been there--I'm what's known as city folk, but my Mama was a country girl, and somewhere along the lines, I fell in love with what she knew, and she'd fallen in love with what her parents knew, and so on. 

After losing my father, I realized I knew very little of his era...Folk Wisdom is sort of a love letter to my parents, and the more I talked to other FOLKS, I realized that most people felt a sense of losing those common sense skills and ideas from the past, as well.

At one point in time, we all had Common Wisdom, and the wisdom towards self sufficiency. Old building techniques, homemaking, crafts, food preservation, work with animals, cool Folk Art and culture... and beautiful things...when did these become relics, relegated to nostalgia?

And that's where FOLK WISDOM magazine steps in. Folk Wisdom is taking what is known, telling it like it is, and updating it for our modern readers. Our talented writers are dedicated to bringing you DIY projects, recipes, great uses for olden things, people preserving the past, and persevering with that ideal--into the future.

If you'd like to actively participate, we'd love to hear from you. JUST CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS on how to share your Wisdom.

Overall, we just want to share the Wisdom,  bring back a bit of what's important and maybe even make it cool, hip, and happening again.Mostly, we just want to make it accessible to anyone and everyone who wants a bit of Folk Wisdom in their lives!

Be Wise,
Zan Asha
Founder, Folk Wisdom Magazine
