Product Details


As seen in TimeVogue, Organic Life, C Magazine, Beekman 1802 Almanac, and on Food52, Mind Body Green, Well+Good, and many more!

Harvest achieves the nearly impossible balance of being aspirational yet totally achievable, tempting me with all the goodness that I can create from even the most common plants (including parts of them I never before thought to use). The projects are fresh and unfussy—from bath time to booze time, salads to salves. I plan on showering the people in my life with projects from Harvest; each is infused with love and uses my favorite medium—the garden.”
—Johanna Silver, Garden Editor of Sunset magazine and author of The Bold Dry Garden

“Homestead Design Collective landscape designers Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis combine work and play in their artful tome. The two transform the best of the harvest with ideas like quick-pickled rhubarb, and whimsical, French-style lilac-scented cream.”
—Food & Wine

“Use your summer bounty in surprising ways with the ideas in Harvest. From apricot facial masks to oregano flower-infused vinegar, there’s plenty to discover!”
Birds & Blooms

“An inspiring, instructive book by specialists well-versed in horticulture that manages to be both a very informative garden guide and a source of inspiration for lovely and delicious ways to use your garden bounty.”
Edible East Bay

“47 plants, with notes on growing them and a project for each, including salves, salads, mixed drinks, herb infused oils and casual bouquets.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Arranged according to seasons, and accompanied by dramatic and intimate color photos, these creative and eclectic projects make a great resource for the earth-minded lover who relishes nature’s gifts but needs new ways of cultivating them and deriving their bountiful benefits.”
Publishers Weekly

 ”One of winter’s best books.”
—Modern Farmer

“An attractive and inspiring collection good for gardeners of any type.”
Library Journal

“Practical and inspiring all at once, Harvest inextricably weaves together the pleasures of the kitchen and the garden for cooks and gardeners.”
—Samin Nosrat, chef and author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

Harvest is about enjoying ALL parts of our garden’s plants. While both beauty and flavor are celebrated, the authors take DIY to even deeper levels. They share innovative projects that nourish our taste buds, nurture our skin, and even feed our soul. But they do this by using every plant part imaginable including roots, seeds and petals. Harvest is a must-have resource for anyone who wants to truly utilize every bit that their garden has to offer.”
—Theresa Loe, Living Homegrown

“This seasonal guide is filled with 100 herbal projects that will start your creative juices flowing…Each activity is clearly laid out on its own page and faced by a beautiful, full-page photograph that alone will inspire. These are excellent botanical gift ideas.”
—Kathi Keville, American Herb Association Quarterly
