A Letter From Johanna

Hello kind people.

I hope this finds you safe and sound, navigating your way through these most uncertain of times. This definitely isn’t the day-of-publication announcement I’d been dreaming about, yet here I am, with my book, GROWING WEED IN THE GARDEN, hitting bookstands today.

What I will say is this: Cooped up at home at the start of spring is the perfect time to get into the garden and plant some seeds. Few activities relieve anxiety and offer the hope of self-reliance as perfectly as making a garden of one’s own. It’s also not a bad time for reading funny books with pretty pictures.

And weed! How about that for an anxiety reducer and perspective shifter? Gardening + weed = a good combo right now.

This first-ever, outdoor-only, beautifully-photographed book is perfect for anyone who is into gardening or remotely canna-curious. Who better than yours truly, a non-stoner, true-dirt gardener to walk them through the process, seed to stash. (Bed to bong was a close runner up.)

Books didn’t make it to local bookstores before locking down, so the only way to get it at this time is through an online retailer—links hereAmazon has books but (rightly) won’t ship them until essential items have been fulfilled. Indiebound ships via USPS and you’ll likely get it faster. If you’re wary of ordering packages right now for any reason, you can purchase a digital version of the book. When this is all over, please consider buying a hardcopy from your favorite local bookstore to help support their recovery.

Thank you for the support,
