Description
Into the Weeds empowers budding and experienced gardeners alike to embrace a gentler, less rigid and more sustainable approach to tending the land.

Tama Matsuoka Wong, master forager and gardener, invites you break free from meticulously ordered beds and rethink the way you engage with and value the plants around you. Into the Weeds teaches you to encourage those plants, even if you didn't plant them yourself, turn invasive vines into simple structures like borders and beds, and transform the bounty of your surroundings into teas, tinctures, and cocktails.

Part practical and part philosophical, Into the Weeds includes a plant ID section for some of the most common edible, useful, plants in the world. A project on making wildflower leis shows how one made with the "scrap" flowers can be just as beautiful as one made from showy plants.

As the author writes, "All land, be it a formal hardscaped botanical garden, public park, office courtyard, backyard, front yard, farmland, community plot, urban lot, a windowsill pot...can shelter a little wilderness, a piece of paradise."
