Melinda Joy’s book, Shamanic Gardening: Timeless Techniques for the Modern Sustainable Garden, will be released in the fall of 2012 by Process Media Inc. It integrates sustainable, ancient and traditional gardening methods with shamanic principles and modern permaculture. The practices, history, myths, recipes, and philosophies inside her book will enhance your relationship with nature, sustain the earth, delight your senses, and nourish your soul.
Warm and sunny regards, Mariëtte Verlaan
