Feminist Weed Farmer: Growing Mindful Medicine in Your Own Backyard

by Madrone Stewart

Weed is 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 each detail of growing about six backyard plants, from selecting seeds to harvest 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.

"...handbook for 'women, queer folks, and folks of color' who are 'radically excluded... from the emerging cannabis industry' and wish to learn to farm mindfully."

"...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)."
