In honor of International Women's Day (this Saturday, March 8th) Deb Soule will be offering her new book: How to Move Like a Gardener at a 15% discount. All proceeds from the sale will go to benefit New Hope for Women, a local Maine non-profit working to end domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
The book includes information on the Grow a Row project, which Deb is launching to encourage people everywhere to grow Calendula flowers. The flowers can then be made into oils and salves and offered to local women and shelters to support healing. The sale runs from Thursday, March 3rd to Sunday, March 9th. We encourage you to buy a few copies to share with advocates for women in your family and community and we hope you will Grow a Row!
Further information on the Grow a Row project will soon be posted at: MoveLikeAGardener.com

Avena Botanicals Herbal Apothecary & Gardens
Avena Botanicals Herbal Apothecary and Biodynamic Gardens offers a variety of hand-crafted herbal remedies for supporting the health and well being of our customers. Most of our products are made with herbs grown and hand-harvested from our own biodynamic garden, situated on a 32-acre farm in Rockport, Maine. Avena was founded in 1985 by herbalist and gardener Deb Soule. Since then, Avena Botanicals has continued to expand and grow, serving both its local community and customers from afar who seek hand-made custom herbal remedies.
In 1995, Avena moved to its current location where Deb was able to design and plant a large organic and biodynamic herb garden. This beautiful three-acre garden provides an abundance of certified biodynamic herbs for the apothecary, a classroom for students, nectar-producing flowers for pollinators and a peaceful place for visitors to renew their spirit and find healing in nature.
