THE PERMACULTURE YEAR
Since formally studying and practicing sustainable agriculture/gardening and herbalism beginning in 2008 and earning her Permaculture Design Certification in 2011 - Danielle has been quietly gathering the activities, processes, and tasks associated with permaculture living and homesteading into a compendium and guide for integrating our lives more firmly into the earth.
The Permaculture Year serves as a field guide to understanding where we are in the world, why it matters, and how we can collectively celebrate the turning of the seasons and the unfolding of time across the landscape and home.
MEDICINAL PLANTS IN THE LANDSCAPE
Building upon Danielle's experience as a landscape architect, herbalist, and permaculture gardener - Medicinal Plants in the Landscape provides a much needed resource to landscape design professionals and home gardeners. Going beyond integrating food production into the landscape, medicinal plants are already among us and have the capacity to expand their presence and landscape benefits in addition to providing community access to traditional plant-based medicine.
Danielle has created a design and best-practices guide for trees, shrubs, vines, and perennials to assist in locating and maintaining these plants within the landscape and built environment. Plant lists include information about traditional medicinal uses, maintenance and harvest schedules and methods, and suggested companion plants, polyculture suggestions, and related plant communities.
