Congratulations to Kelli! Her number was selected by the random generator! Rosemary Gladstar’s new book is going home to her and her family. Said Kelli in her comment:
“This book would be perfect for my daughter. She’s 16, and for some of her schooling this year, I’m going to require her to read some herbal books… AND apply what she’s learned to the family!”
I hope your daughter enjoys it as much as mine has Kelli!
