Permaculture Library Collection
UPDATE 2/28/2021: SOLD! I am so pleased they are going to one of my past students and her permaculture community in a land a love! It is surprisingly emotional to let these books go as permaculture is such a big part of my life and value system, I just feel others will make better use of them now. Very grateful. Sorry if you came her from Facebook, I tried to edit the original post but they wouldn’t let me, so I could only do it in comments.
Note: I’m working on organizing 5 boxes of Mother Earth News magazines right now which date from the very first ones, and I’m also hoping to find a good home for, but I get so sidetracked by the amazing articles this might take a while!
I am selling my core set of books which I’ve collected and used over the years in my learning and teaching about permaculture design. I’ve reached a point in my life when I feel I’m settled into my new place, and am scaling back on the types of projects I’ll be working on and it’s time to let these books go to someone who will appreciate them.
Most are in new or near new condition, with no writing other than a personalized front page on a few. They include some rare first editions (Small Scale Grain Raising- Gold in the Grass- Sepp Holzer Rebel Farmer) as well as the classics (Permaculture-A Designers Manual, Edible Forest Gardens Vol 1 & 2, Gaia’s Garden, The One-straw Revolution) and many more skills related books relevant to small homesteading.
I’ve priced this set to sell as a unit because I think they really work together for someone who is just now embarking on this path. Individually priced at online at low-ball used book prices they come in around $425. If I can sell this as a set I would be happy with $200. Note that the Permaculture Manual sells used at $75+, the Edible Forest Garden set at $100+, as examples. We can meet for a pickup in Olympia/Shelton area, or in Seattle area, or arrange for shipping via USPS media mail, which runs about $30 to Washington/Oregon.
I am going to try to sell this as a set right now. If it doesn’t sell in a couple of weeks I’ll break the set apart and sell separately. Feel free to contact me directly with questions.

Foraged Cocktail Vermouth Kit
Create your own floral, semi-dry vermouth from our own custom blend of herbs, fruits, spices and wildflowers such as elderflower, yarrow and meadowsweet, along with traditional vermouth ingredients such mugwort and wormwood.
Each kit comes with our proprietary blend of herbs, macerating jar, recipe cards and herbal information. Add a bottle of white wine and vodka of your choice, let infuse for 7-10 days, strain and serve!
Vermouth is all the rage in Spain and Italy as a sipping drink, and has made its way into craft spirits in America. We love it as an aperitif- mixed with sparkling water over ice, with an orange twist and seasonal fruit garnish, and it pairs with gins to bourbons. The infused herbs are some of the most important healing herbs we know, great for the digestion and as a general tonic. It is also the surprise ingredient in many of our ‘foraged cocktail recipes, adding a bright, floral bouquet to our drinks.
These make great gifts for you and your friends. To learn more about The Foraged Cocktails and our mother / daughter collaboration teaching and sharing about fun ways to use our local foraged plants visit us at theforagedcocktail.com

Journey Plant Medicine Cards
These fully laminated, waterproof cards are designed to serve as a quick reference for using wild plants found along the way to help treat common ailments using fresh plants in poultices, teas, infusions, compresses and syrups.
These were originally designed for use along Tribal Canoe Journey, and annual event that tribes throughout the Northwest participate in each summer, camping along the way, often for weeks, until a final landing in one large gathering. I have implemented trainings using these cards for tribes throughout the region, which has led to further refinements and additions to the card sets. I’ve outreached at herbal conferences where they were enthusiastically received, and welcomed feedback. The response is overwhelmingly positive and I hope you will enjoy them as well. They are great gifts and I offer discounts for multiple orders for your programs.
Journey Plant Medicines Trainings can be arranged for your group, and offered periodically through the year through Gatherer to Gardener programs.
