Medicine Rattles and Our Future

The healing journey may begin with ourselves, but unless it extends outwards towards our homes, our communities, our ecosystem, and our biosphere any healing we achieve can not last….–Harvest McCampbell

I can’t remember exactly how it was I came across Harvest McCampbell’s inspiring book (which is also a very helpful resource) Food Security & Sustainability: For The Times Ahead, but I am sure glad I did, became her friend on facebook, and had the opportunity to meet her last year. Her extensive knowledge of all kinds of plants and their medicinal abilities for healing both humankind and the earth, and her open nature have really given me a lot of hope and inspiration over the past couple years. Whenever I have a question about soil, compost, healing and even history she is available. I personally don’t know how she does it, as I know she has a large following on facebook, and that she manages to keep up with all of us!

Food Security & Sustainability

Spider Web

Food Security & Sustainability: For The Times Ahead by Harvest McCampbell, published by Bio Diverse Press in May 2008 arrived just in time.

This book is a level headed and comprehensive look at what is coming our way. Without fear-mongering and trying to get rich off of your fears, Harvest McCampbell provides a wealth of resources and practical steps that you can take to prepare for the transition that our world is gearing up for.

Harvest shares her vision of a Green World that her Grandmother passed down to her, and makes us consider how we would survive if we woke up one day in a world without asphalt or cars. In this book Harvest shares her answers to the question her Gram used to ask her when they were out in the woods gathering wild food and herbs.

“Maybe today, maybe when we get back to where we left the car, there will be no car, there will be no roads. Then what will we do Little One?”

In a few simple paragraphs, Harvest McCampbell filled my head with visions of the Green World her Gram spoke of and my heart with a secure feeling of hope. This book points to how we can each help each other to find our way through the mess we have made of things by working together with respect and confidence.
