- "Over the Rainbow" A Gardeners Guide to Creating Light-Filled Gardens
Over The Rainbow: a gardener's guide to creating light-filled gardens is a spiritual gardening book. You'll find plenty of information on basic gardening techniques - what I call the "nuts 'n bolts" of gardening such as Soil Amendments 101, tips and techniques for planning and planting the garden and "the scoop on soil tests" which explains what a soil test can reveal about your garden soil and how to make it better. From there it expands into an array of informative topics such as honoring nature's cycles in the garden (i.e.; planting by the moon for instance), planting for pollinators, insights on gardening with children, various techniques for preserving your harvest, which includes about 30 garden fresh recipes and gardening in climate change. For those interested in the more spiritual aspects of gardening I've included techniques for communicating with Nature, particularly in the garden, a chapter introducing the use of flower essences (and how to make them) and a chakra balancing meditation. There's something in this book for everybody!
