Feminist Weed Farmer: Growing Mindful Medicine in Your Own Backyard

by Madrone Stewart

Weed is a powerful medicine, and growing your own is as empowering as it gets. Experienced Humboldt farmer Madrone Stewart, shares her hard-won knowledge gained from years of growing cannabis, Zen meditation, and surviving as a woman in a male-dominated industry. She walks you through the big picture and details of growing six backyard plants, from selecting seeds to harvesting and processing. Humorous, sage, and with a big heart, each chapter is infused with what she's learned about equalizing the weed industry, applying mindfulness to pest management, and the importance of owning each step of the process. If you've ever wanted to grow your own pot or make hash or kief at home, this book is your wise guide.

... Madrone has harvested a wealth of knowledge and experience in homegrown cannabis cultivation, all of which she communicates powerfully in her book. Feminist Weed Farmer also explores the lessons Madrone has picked up from meditation and the challenges she’s faced as a female farmer in the male-dominated pot industry.

"...deep, soulful, but also stunningly-practical guidebook with an audience in mind of “women, queer folks, and folks of color” who are being “radically excluded from the emerging cannabis industry.”

"[It's] important to take a look at books written about cannabis by cannabis growers themselves, especially in the current climate of industry growth, and also from the perspective of those people who come from marginalized backgrounds.

Written by cultivator Madrone Stewart, Feminist Weed Farmer: Growing Your Own Medicine in Your Own Backyard uses a personal narrative to explain the basics of home growing — from seeding to harvesting to processing — through a woman-centric lens"."

"...isn’t just a call to arms for recreational pot smokers—especially women, people of color, and LGBTQ people—to start growing their own weed. It’s also a step-by-step guide aimed at demystifying the gardening process (assuming, of course, that growing your own cannabis is legal in your home state)."
