The Garden Apothecary

The Garden Apothecary is my first book, published this spring with Hardie Grant. When I initially brewed up the idea for this book I had a vision of enabling people to create their own abundant home apothecaries, filling kitchen shelves with jars of powerful herbs using plants grown in their gardens, wild spaces or window boxes.

Design your Life with Permaculture – Holistic Life Planning

With late winter’s themes of transition and rebirth this is actually the time of year that I prefer to use for planning the year ahead, vision boarding and brewing up ideas. I feel it matches the energy of nature more than in mid-winter or January when I'd much rather...
