A leading light in the field of medicinal herb cultivation, The Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm is the first cultivation guide of its kind. It presents invaluable information for growers interested in producing high-quality, efficacious herbs in all climates of the United States, with the historical connectedness of ancient practitioners.
It has become increasingly important — especially as the market for herbal medicine continues to grow — that we transition to local and domestic medicinal cultivation. Increasingly there are concerns regarding to not only the quality but the purity of imported herbs, and wild herbs picked for medicinal purposes are ever more endangered both at home and abroad.
Author Peg Schafer, a longtime grower and teacher, guides readers with information on propagating, cultivating and harvesting Chinese herbs, and presents fascinating new scientific data that reveal the age-old wisdom of nature and the traditional systems of Chinese medicine. Through 79 detailed herb profiles — all tested and trialed on Schafer’s certified organic farm — Schafer offers easy-to-follow information, suitable for both growers and practitioners, for growing efficacious wild-simulated herbs. Also included is important information on species conservation, crop integration and how to avoid the introduction of invasive species. Sidebars on traditional medicinal uses for each herb and delicious recipes are also featured throughout.
Vegetable and community-supported agriculture (CSA) farmers will find this book of great interest for adding value-added crops to their repertoire. Beginner growers looking to incorporate medicinals into their gardens will find the book an invaluable guide to understanding where herbal medicine comes from. And for all readers, it will make eating-your-medicine more accessible than ever.

Most people don’t know what’s in the food they eat every day. Although the recognized brands of packaged and processed foods, salad dressings, canned goods, soft drinks, snack foods, and so on may look the same as always, in many cases their contents have radically changed. They now contain something new and unfamiliar: genetically engineered ingredients. Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health examines how genetic engineering is radically changing our food—at great risk to human health and the environment. Why are scientists genetically altering foods? Are they safe? Why aren’t genetically engineered foods labeled as such? Author Ken Roseboro addresses these and other issues concerning genetically altered foods, and explains why organic foods are practical and safe alternatives to this risky technology.

Vegan food has come a long way in the past decade. The once ubiquitous dry, packaged veggie burger is no longer the poster child for an animal-free diet. It has evolved into a creative, sophisticated cuisine touted by the likes of Food & Wine magazine. Long at the fore of vegan blogging and cooking, Dreena Burton has been known for making healthy taste delicious. Let Them Eat Vegan! distills more than fifteen years of recipe development that emphasize unrefined, less-processed ingredients--no white flour or white sugar, but instead whole-grain flours, natural sweeteners, raw foods, and plenty of beans 'n greens. There’s no relying on meat analogues here, either--just hearty, healthy food that looks and tastes great. As the mother of three young girls, Burton always keeps their nutrition--and taste buds--in mind. From the simplest comfort foods like Warm "Vegveeta" Cheese Sauce to the more sophisticated Anise-and Coriander-Infused Orange Lentil Soup, these recipes will delight and inspire even the pickiest eaters and provide lifelong vegans with the innovative, wholesome recipes they’ve always wanted.

Nature’s Way Market and Café sells healthy foods and natural cures for what ails you. But there is no cure for murder. . . .
Even naturopathic doctors need a little stress relief—that’s why Willow McQuade, ND, takes a break to visit her Aunt Claire, owner of Nature’s Way Market and Café, on Long Island’s North Fork. But Willow’s serenity is shattered when she finds her aunt’s lifeless body on the market floor, a bottle of Mimulus lying nearby. Taken to calm one’s fear of misfortune, the flower essence clearly failed Aunt Claire . . . for her death was no accident.
But who would want to kill her? The police soon zero in on Willow herself, who stands to inherit Claire’s business and the rights to a breakthrough anti-aging cream. Desperate to prove her innocence, Willow turns to former police officer Jackson Spade for help. Together they unearth a slew of suspects, each with something to gain by Claire’s unnatural demise. But as Willow gets closer to the truth, a killer waits to administer one final dose of death.
