  • CLOVER HERBAL BALM

    Mockingbird Meadows formulates their Clover Balm to soothe serious dry skin issues. Red Clover, the humble weed that’s at the center of this formula, has been known for centuries for its abilities to help heal symptoms of eczema+. It is especially good for childhood eczema, but the formula has quite a devoted following from both adults and children.

    Description
    Red clover is the main attraction of this formula. The addition of lanolin makes this balm heavier and greasier than the other balms the farm produces. Those qualities are just what is required to deliver the deep moisture needed to address a dry skin condition, such as eczema. Mockingbird Meadows has seen some improvement for various forms of psoriasis, as well. Try applying this gently scented balm before bedtime, when you will not need to be as active. If you can, add a covering of some sort to the affected area to help lock in the moisture.

  • COMPANION PLANTING FOR THE KITCHEN GARDENER

    Companion planting techniques have been used for centuries to facilitate better, more nutritious, and more abundant crops. Did you know that beets will grow better if surrounded by mint or garlic, but tomatoes should not be planted near cabbage? Flax helps protect some root vegetables from pests, and tomatoes will thrive when planted near carrots (though the carrots may wind up stunted). Your celery will be happier if it’s far away from corn, but broccoli and dill make a terrific garden pair. It’s a lot to think about, but there’s no reason to feel overwhelmed. With Companion Planting for the Kitchen Gardener, you’ll have all the information you need in clear, concise terms and with charts and garden plans you can copy or modify to suit your family’s needs.

    Starting with the basics of organic gardening, such as how to prepare quality soil and the importance of cover crops and organic fertilizer, authors Allison and Tim Greer explain the principles of companion planting, how plants interact, and how you can use that information to your garden’s benefit. There is an entire chapter devoted to each of the 15 most popular vegetables, with charts, diagrams, and descriptions of each … a treasure for gardeners with busy lives who want an easy reference guide for planning their ideal kitchen garden. Full of gorgeous, full-color photographs and easy-to-follow diagrams, this is a beautiful, useful guide for the home organic gardener.

  • CONCEIVING HEALTHY BABIES

    Healthy babies don't just happen. The lifestyle of the prospective parents is a crucial factor in promoting fertility and ensuring a successful pregnancy.

The reference guide is rounded out by complete information on herbal use before, during and post-pregnancy, and special attention is paid to supporting nursing and lactation.

  • CONSULTING THE GENIUS OF THE PLACE

    Locavore leaders such as Alice Waters, Michael Pollan and Barbara Kingsolver all speak of the need for sweeping changes in how we get our food. A longtime leader of this movement is Wes Jackson, who for decades has taken it upon himself to speak for the land, to speak for the soil itself. Here, he offers a manifesto toward a conceptual revolution: Jackson asks us to look to natural ecosystems—or, if one prefers, nature in general—as the measure against which we judge all of our agricultural practices.

    Jackson believes the time is right to do away with annual monoculture grains, which are vulnerable to national security threats and are partly responsible for the explosion in our health care costs. Soil erosion and the poisons polluting our water and air—all associated with agriculture from its beginnings—foretell a population with its natural fertility greatly destroyed.

    In this eloquent and timely volume, Jackson argues we must look to nature itself to lead us out of the mess we’ve made. The natural ecosystems will tell us, if we listen, what should happen to the future of food.
