Warm Wild Mushrooms and Watercress Salad = Time Well Spent
Time Management seems to be on everyone’s lips: from learning how to regulate oneself whilst working from home to managing online schooling for children to working in your spiritual/exercise/health routine.

Candice Covington's Latest Book ~ Vibrational Nutrition

Candice Covington's Latest Book ~ Vibrational Nutrition

Writing this book has been a labor of love. I have always been enchanted with plants in their many glorious forms, although I primarily interacted with them through story, archetypes, myth, scent, and vibration. I have been a certified aromatherapist and practicing flower essence practitioner for many years, so I primarily  experienced the plant kingdoms vibrancy in little bottles and potions.   

As nature is won't to do, she nudged me along along to a different path. She was ready for me to experience her in a new way. A very hands on way. She opened the gate to a charming farmette in Oregon. I answered the call with enthusiasm! And I was able to get my hands dirty for the first time. I fell in love with gardening, foraging, and wild crafting. I am able to keep ducks and a goose (I only keep one) as she is my faithful companion and partner in farm shenanigans.   

This became my moving meditation: taking care of my plant family and learning from them; walking with their wild cousins looking for nettle, mushrooms and fiddle head ferns. As I did so they started to whisper in my ear and heart and soon this book started to unfold for me. 

I cannot not take credit for this wonderful synopsis. Inner Traditions incredible editorial staff did a bang up job of summing up my work! 

From the bottom of my heart I am happy to share this work with you. 

With love,

Starting Seedlings! Satisfying & Delicious

There are very few things, I find more therapeutic and satisfying than starting seedlings and nurturing them to harvest. Our goal this year was to plant every single thing we buy at market and extraordinary heirloom and exotic varieties we cannot find. Also, I get all googly-eyed thinking about all the Vibrational Essences  I can make It is incredibly fun perusing seed catalogs, I highly recommend curling up with a brisk cup of tea and reading the  Territorial Seed Company  catalog, the images of the plants are beautiful and the descriptions are rich. It is easy to image how varieties you...

Planting Spring on a Rainy Day

Oregon has had an unusually wet and long winter and this morning was no different - we woke up to grey skies and raindrops - this generated a feeling of malaise for both Curtis and I While sipping pipping hot coffee on our covered porch to ward off the damp, our usually cheery conversation turned to grumbles. As we muddied our way through all the things we did not want to do today. We finally struck gold! We would bring Spring to us.  We gulped down the last of of our coffee, slipped on our wellies and away we went...
