Holiday Gift Giving made with love!

by Carla Griffin on December 21, 2015

Stephanie Rose started gardening to help pass the time while recovering from a debilitating yearlong illness. She soon caught the gardening bug, and today she is a master gardener in Vancouver, where she teaches organic gardening, food growing and garden crafts and produces her Garden Therapy blog. Now Rose has a new book, Garden Made: A Year of Seasonal Projects to Beautify Your Garden and Your Life (Roost Books, $25.95), which features more than 40 DIY projects, including homemade paper, candles, wreaths and planters.

She aims to inspire as well as be accessible, writing of her projects: “They are meant to sweep you away, allow you to dive in to a sensory experience that engages your body and mind, and leave you with something beautiful to enjoy in your home or garden.” We offer two of them, Mason jar forced bulbs and evergreen gift tags, below.
