Here's What Others Have to Say
Beautiful and thoughtfully written, At the Garden’s Gate traces a woman’s inner journey as she creates a wildflower meadow. The meadow becomes a teacher, a metaphor for life, and a calling. Tucked within the pages of this magical book are threads of gold; poems, quotes, meditations, and ceremonies one can use in one’s own garden. And also, sound and practical instructions for creating a wildflower meadow.Rosemary Gladstar
“At the Garden Gate” is a beautiful journey through one woman’s life of inner and outer exploration with an emerging meadow as her guide. Judith’s use of the Medicine Wheel of Truth and the plants that make each truth come alive serves not only as a physical framework but as a spiritual anchor as she discovers the truth of her own being. As I read this book I felt the plants and landscape reaching out encouraging me to stop mowing and a breath of inspiration blew through me. Thanks to Judith Dreyer and her heart-felt story for filling me with excitement to co-create a meadow landscape where my favorite plant friends can flourish.Pam Montgomery
An inspiring and beautiful book, At the Garden’s Gate, opens the door to our connection with the exuberant natural world of plants and herbs. Judith Dreyer’s transformation of part of her lawn into a meadow, tracing the Native American medicine wheel onto her meadow, selecting common plants with extraordinary possibilities, brings us into the heart of how nature is always at hand to heal us physically and spiritually. How can we live our life enriched by nature’s gifts that are within our easy grasp? Trained by L. Cota and herbalists, with echoes from Ayurveda and ancient therapies, Dreyer answers this question with vibrant examples from her nature apothecary. Consciousness of nature presences around her and their impact on her own personal reawakening from loss and change, this book invites us to embrace nature and renew ourselves. – See more at: http://www.judithdreyer.com/book-reviews/#sthash.wJtIVgFN.dpufPramila Venkateswaran
Similar to the healing properties of the plants honored in its chapters, At the Garden’s Gate enriches us through a shared botanical knowledge steeped with Native American teachings. A story which not only educates the mind, but the soul as well.Edward Bonapartian
