Herbal Adventures Giveaway


In the northern hemisphere, the days are growing longer, the sun is growing warmer, and plants are springing up all around us. Here in Wisconsin, the catnip, dandelion, plantain, nettle, and chickweed are just beginning to awaken from their long winter rest. All of these herbs are featured in my new book, Herbal Adventures, where you’ll find safe foraging tips, field ID, and loads of recipes for teas, snacks, balms, and treats made from these common backyard plants.

As a happy coincidence, my birthday (today!) coincides with “Thank an Herbalist Day”, and my book is turning six months old.

How could I resist offering a giveaway?
Enter for yourself (if you don’t already have a copy), or donate one to a friend or your local library!
If your copy is already in hand, now is the time to crack it open, and get cracking on a batch of nettle soup, a chickweed salad, or some dandelion fritters. Or perhaps a batch of Calm Kids Tea or chickweed salve. So many wonderful things to make starting now and going right through autumn.
To win a copy, simply do all of the following:
1. Subscribe to my blog email if you haven’t already (see below)
2. Leave a comment below to add your name to the drawing
3. If you’d like, share this post with a pal, and be sure to tell them why you think they’d love my book! Then leave a separate comment below telling me that you did so.
You can enter here, on my Facebook Page, and on my Instagram. I’ll choose a winner at the end of the week for combined entries.

Good luck, and happy herbalist day!

P.S. Several of you have asked where the best place to pick up a copy of my book is. While it is available at some big online retailers, buying it from your local bookstore is always a win.
Or snag your copy right from me, on my website. Thanks so much for all the love and support you have shown me (and my book)!
Giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Spencer MacLeod!

    I love your book and have a copy so will not enter your giveaway. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your knowledge in your book as well as your blog posts… A huge thank you for yesterdays post, the one about the “controlled burns”. It was so honest and powerful and so memorable. Deep thanks.

    I took an urban foraging class here in Austin, TX. I recognize the plants you mention that are springing up in Wisconsin. I came to your site serendipitously when I got a post from Learning Herbs about your sorbet and ice cream recipes. My kinder students are going to make ice cream & sorbet, and I’m looking forward to using at least one herb from our school garden. We have lavender and stevia. Do you have any suggestions as to how to use stevia in either of your recipes? I’m not sure which species of lavender we’re growing, maybe the Texas lavender. Any suggestions regarding the lavender that yields the best flavor? (These kids aren’t used to herbs in their ice cream, but I’m game.)

    I sent the link to your giveaway to my kinder colleagues, most of whom have kids and love herbs and essential oils already. I let them know that the book is a guide for kids and adults to learn and experiment together!

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I would love a copy of your book to share with my boys. I want to integrate herbalism into our every day and I know your book would help us do just that!

    My boys just made me my first cup of dandelion tea for the season. Would love for them to learn more with your book giveaway.

    Happy Birthday, Rachel! My little one will be turning 3(!) in less than a week and he already discovered the love for herbs! His favorite currently is rosemary that he eats fresh from the bush 😉 We would love your book to discover more herbal goodness!
