There is a saying in the gardening community: Grow where you're planted. It means to do your best to develop, grow, and yes, even bloom, regardless of your situation or circumstance. I like to use this same philosophy when it comes to my spiritual and magickal work. I use store-bought things, and am very happy to have access to them. However, I want my religious tradition to be more than something I buy online or do on one of the eight Sabbats. I want to see magick in the world around me. So, I often look for supplies right outside my door. "But," you say, "I don’t have a yard or a garden. Where am I supposed to look for herbs?" Right under foot, dearie. I wrote A Witch's Guide ...

In mid-February 2008, I drove through the northeast Iowa countryside and was startled to see dozens of farmers in their fields on tractors, plowing through several feet of snow!

This article focuses on creating room to grow flowers, herbs, plants, vegetables, trees, and shrubs by maximizing use of ...

How can we create a sustainable world? Are we doomed to extinction, or is there hope? I believe we can craft a new world, one garden at a time…. Into my sturdy canvas bag I put heirloom tomatoes, giant zucchinis, and shiny green peppers, picked fresh that morning. The farm pickup volunteer sits in his wheelchair, calmly surveying the hubbub of shareholders as they weigh out cherry tomatoes and choose the right chilies. My daughter, wrapped around my leg, watches the bustle with interest. Hey, Baby, want to go pick some flowers?" I ask as I choose a bunch of chard and nestle it atop the carrots. We head out into the hot afternoon. As we tromp the dozen yards out to the flower bed ...
