    Densely-packed valuable details with Richo's great real-life experience and stories...you don't need to grow herbs to enjoy it

    I wish I had had all of Richo’s books when I started studying Chinese herbal medicines. His details and experience are invaluable. But you do not need to want to grow much or anything to enjoy his books, you just need an interest in at risk herbs to enjoy this one. I keep it on the coffee table for friends to browse and everyone loves it. We are rebuilding the goldenseal, ginseng, and lady’s slipper populations on our property in the potomac watershed, so Richo’s information is invaluable. But my elderly neighbor loves the few goldenseal plants I put by the tree in her front yard, so one doesn’t need to make a massive project of it to benefit.

    I received my copy of at risk herb growing book today. Just as the herbal Making plant medicine by Richo is, this book gives a lot of information in language that is easy to understand. Because I really want to be successful with raising Lomatium and osha, this book already enlightened me so I have s much better chance at success.
    I intend to try some other herbs
    when I can as well.
    This book needs to be in the hands of every medicinal herb grower.
