Bonnie Rose Weaver is a force of nature: an urban farming herbalist with a deep connection to using plants to heal. Her gorgeous book, Deeply Rooted, informs and inspires the radical understanding that we, as city-dwelling folk, can connect back to our herbal heritage to heal the earth, and ourselves.
-Novella Carpenter, Farm City

Bonnie Rose gets it – Deeply Rooted is based in ancient wisdom and has a modern sense of place.
-Peg Schafer, Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm
Deeply Rooted brings to light the current issues facing herbalists, plant-folk and city-dwellers alike. Its ‘down in the soil’ approach reminds us that learning directly from the plants, growing and tending them and using those that live around us is some of the most potent medicine we have in today’s world. Bonnie Rose asks us not to simply witness the magic of plants but to be an active participant that continues to honor and nurture our one precious Earth in the most difficult of modern times.
