Danu’s Irish Herb Garden

The Weed Handbook

The Weed Handbook is available in two volumes – Volume 1 (green cover) and Volume 2 (yellow cover). Each book introduces readers to common weeds of the northern hemisphere and all can be found here in Connemara. For each weed the medicinal and magical uses are described along with some folklore of past use. There are recipes and suggestions for how to use these herbs/weeds. The objective is to help people to see the beauty that is there in our environment and to change the way we might regard our local plants, from a possible negative view to a positive and grateful view, above all to enable people to appreciate the wonders of biodiversity and our immediate environments.
