Bonnie Rose Weaver is a force of nature: an urban farming herbalist with a deep connection to using plants to heal. Her gorgeous book, Deeply Rooted, informs and inspires the radical understanding that we, as city-dwelling folk, can connect back to our herbal heritage to heal the earth, and ourselves.

​Bonnie Rose gets it – Deeply Rooted is based in ancient wisdom and has a modern sense of place.

Peg Schafer, Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm


Deeply Rooted is a genuine statement of love, dedication, artistry, empowerment, and life-affirming rebellion. Beyond these very real cultural elements, Deeply Rooted comprises a handsome, nicely illustrated, well-written, informed book about growing and using herbs in the Big City.
