A timely companion to Simple Wisdom, and a fetching gift book, offers garden inspiration and expertise from one of America's most beloved cultures

The many readers who loved Kathleen Mahoney's Simple Wisdom will be enchanted by this charming exploration of Shaker gardening traditions. The Shakers' most successful businesses were the growing and selling of vegetable seeds and medicinal herbs. Now Wisdom from a Shaker Garden invites us to share the secrets of Shaker gardens and pantries. Gardening tips, heirloom recipes, and herbal remedies interweave with inspirational poems, sayings, and songs that reflect on nature, the harvest, and the value of hard work and simple living. Evocative photographs of restored Shaker vegetable and herb gardens and well-worn tools intermingle with colorful seed-packet labels, garden maps, and other original Shaker artwork. This simple, genuine, and affordable treasure will charm gardeners, herbal-remedy enthusiasts, and the unwavering numbers who love all things Shaker.
