Wild & Weedy!

WildWeedySpring is coming! The temperature is creeping above 32 degrees and birds are chirping away every morning. It’s the perfect time to start making plans for growing, cooking, eating, and healing with all things green and fresh.

Publishers Weekly chimed in at just the right time with a pitch-perfect review of one of our newly released books: The Wild & Weedy Apothecary. Described as “well-considered alphabetic valentine to natural healing,” author Doreen Shababy proves her graceful and extensive knowledge of herbs. From manicotti to tinctures, from homemade yogurt to healing salve, Shababy gracefully walks us through her lifelong love of spiritual and culinary herbal applications. PW says, “Generous with her sources and references, Shababy’s voluminous guide will help armchair naturalists and horticulturalists get the most out of nature’s bounty.”

Did you know that in the ancient traditions of Greece, Rome, India, and the Far East, medications and perfumes were one and the same? And did you know that the plantain weed is instant first aid, or that the petals of cleanly grown roses are completely safe to eat? Shababy shares these amazing facts effortlessly. Her warm and knowledgable voice offers readers an abundance of practical tips in the garden as well as delightful information for the soul.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I don’t feel all that graceful when I’m digging in the compost, but I appreciate the compliment nonetheless. However, there is a certain and tangible grace felt when holding the soil in your hands, seeing all its parts, and working to nourish both soil and self in the process. You don’t need twenty acres to know this, a planter of your favorite herbs can be inspiration enough.
Thanks again for the kind and encouraging words.
