My new book, Backyard Garden Witchery, is about to come out! It's being called a natural companion for Kitchen Witchery.

Like Kitchen Witchery this book is loaded with magickal information to enrich your daily practice. Featuring a huge list of correspondences and instructions to help you create your own unique outdoors sanctuary.

Create an enchanting garden for mindfulness and magick right in your own backyard. No matter what your skill level is, you'll find practical advice for building and maintaining a biodiverse space, as well as spiritual guidance for keeping it sacred and safe. Backyard Garden Witchery covers not only the ins and outs of dirt types, zones, and sun exposure, but also the energy of plants, regions, and land spirits. This beginner-friendly book makes it easy to develop your own living, breathing sanctuary for herbalism, meditation, spell work, divination, healing, or worship. Laurel Woodward's thoughtful instruction and enthusiasm for the outdoors can help you design a natural haven that feeds your sense of wonder and enhances your connection to the earth.
