The 2006 Prairie Garden Book - Myth, Magic & Meditation

The 2006 book features "Myth, Magic and Meditation!" We explore the nature by which we are rejuvenated through gardening or by visiting gardens. Stefan Fediuk, Guest Editor for the 2006 book, has served the greater Winnipeg area in a horticultural capacity for the last 20 years. His hopes are that this issue's focus on our gardening customs and traditions will help validate our perceptions of the ability of gardens and gardening to uplift our spirit. This theme lent itself to a variety of stories about special prairie gardens, and folklore and myths about our prairie native and garden plants. Some of the topics covered include:
