Seasonal Family Almanac
An indispensable guide and hands-on resource for families that want to joyfully build or deepen their connection with nature through a range of recipes for cooking, wellness, personal care, and crafts all year long.

- Over 40 delicious food and beverage recipes from around the world, inspired by the authors' heritage and community, including Soothing White Pine Tea; Lunar New Year Dumplings; and Blueberry Lavender Crisp Bars
- Over 30 personal care and wellness recipes ranging from Violet and Dandelion Face Steam to a complete Newborn Care Kit, Clearing Chest Rub, and Forest Bathing Salts
