In honor of Harvest's recent release, Stefani and Alethea will be autographing a limited number of books.
Harvest is a beautifully photographed, gift-worthy guide to growing, harvesting, and utilizing 47 unexpected garden plants to make organic pantry staples, fragrances, floral arrangements, beverages, cocktails, beauty products, bridal gifts, and more.
Every garden--not just vegetable plots--can produce a bountiful harvest! This practical, inspirational, and seasonal guide will help make any garden more productive and enjoyable with a variety of projects using unexpected and often common garden plants, some of which may already be growing in your backyard.
Discover the surprising usefulness of petals and leaves, roots, seeds, and fruit: turn turmeric root into a natural dye and calamintha into lip balm. Make anise hyssop into a refreshing iced tea and turn apricots into a facial mask. Crabapple branches can be used to create stunning floral arrangements, oregano flowers to infuse vinegar, and edible chrysanthemum to liven up a salad. With the remarkable, multi-purpose plants in Harvest, there is always something for gardeners to harvest from one growing season to the next.
"Harvest achieves the nearly impossible balance of being aspirational yet totally achievable, tempting me with all the goodness that I can create from even the most common plants (including parts of them I never before thought to use). The projects are fresh and unfussy—from bath time to booze time, salads to salves. I plan on showering the people in my life with projects from Harvest; each is infused with love and uses my favorite medium—the garden."
