“Cultivate your garden apothecary and transform your life”
You don’t have to be a gardener to find this book useful. Each plant listing has a “how we love to use this plant”.
Stacey Demarco is a bestselling author who specialises in pagan, nature and mythos-based subjects. She is internationally respected, with her works translated into many different languages. She is the author of the popular annual Lunar and Seasonal Diary for both the northern and southern hemispheres and is known widely as ‘the Modern Witch’.
Stacey has an eclectic collection of plant friends and seed-saves and lives in Sydney’s Northern Beaches in a small house with a big garden with her husband, animal companions and about 10,000 bees. Her favourite plant is chickweed because being clumsy she often finds and anti-inflammatory very handy.
Miranda Mueller is a permaculturist who lives with her husband and two children, chickens and other animals in the Dandenong Ranges. She runs a successful herb and vegetable seedling nursery encompassing a gardening business and teaches permaculture from the home farm. Miranda regularly opens the farm gates to encourage others to reconnect with the art of growing food, for people’s health as well as for the earth’s wellbeing. Her favourite plant is the dandelion, a plant that has been labelled a weed, yet delivers so much wisdom and nutrition whilst growing in the cracks of concrete.
