Growing Plant Medicine Set — Vols 1 and 2, complete.

The set consists of:

Vol 1:  The adventures of the Cech Family practicing self-sufficiency in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon.  Theory and practice of natural gardening techniques in the garden of diversity.  How to grow, harvest and use a vast array of medicinal herbs. Seed saving.  Bioregional medicinal plant recommendations, garden plans and materia medica.  Arranged in plant families by way of kinship and common name.  Extensive index.  Families A through H. 354 pages, soft-bound.

Vol 2:  More adventures of the Cech family, this time camping in the roughshod Red Buttes wilderness.  The usual combination of cuteness, herbs, nature, adventure, bats and robots.  The core of the book consists of herbal monographs arranged by plant families I  through Z, thereby completing the 2 volume set.  Vol. 2 also includes  a chapter on medicinal trees as well as 2 charts:  1) on seeds per gram of 586 different medicinal plants and 2) on the dry down (how many pounds of fresh herb must be picked to produce 1 pound of dried herb)  for 200 botanicals.  This is a personal book with stories and poems derived from a life lived among the herbs, including our archaeological wanderings, African adventures and farming in Southern Oregon.  Extensively indexed. 256 pages, soft-bound.

Realistically illustrated by Sena Cech, with line drawings of the actual plants, flowers, seeds and seedlings.

Shipping of this 2-book set is free on this website and within the USA.  List price is a discount over buying the books separately.
