Extracurricular magazine's Issue Ten is out! And it's a good one. The theme is self-sufficiency and there are articles on bee-keeping, sourdough making, slow fashion, homebrew, soap making AND a feature by me called, The kitchen sink school of herbalism.
I also wrote a field guide of three commonly found medicinal plants beautifully illustrated by Melissa of tinyhappy....
...and also to be found within EC's most excellent pages are tutorials for two simple herbal preparations. Vanessa from Box Brownie photography took the photos for my work in this issue.
It is always a thrill to see my work published, no matter how many times it happens or whether i see the proofs beforehand, it's like a seed germinating... there is something magical about holding the actual pages in my hands.
I have a copy for you too. To have a chance to win a copy of your very own, leave a comment below. I will pop a copy of my Plant Medicine Handbook in the parcel as well. Blogpost about the GrowMama Plant medicine handbook HERE. Giveaway open to you, wherever you live. Winner drawn from names in a hat by the smallest member of the household next week.
(PS- the SewMamaSew giveaway day is on December 3rd, i'll be participating, so stay tuned for another giveaway of GrowMama handcrafted gear soon.)
Update: Giveaway is closed folks, and the winner is Georgia. Yay! You can still get your copy though...hop along to the extracurricular blog for a list of stockists, or buy one on Felt.co.nz. x
