Three Year Garden Journal
The Far Woods
- There’s a lot to remember from season to season and year to year. Which of the rows of lettuce you planted is the Romaine? What temperature was it on March 15 last year? When did you plant those tomato starts? Did you save those Calendula seeds last summer, or the year before? Did it rain at all last July? Now you’ll know. The Three Year Garden Journal divides each day of the year into three spaces for notes. You can write in your own numbers for the years. This way, you can start the journal whenever you want, and keep using it for at least three years. You will also find a section of graph paper in the back for additional notes, sketches, and so forth. Each new month is announced with a lively full illustration spread. The Far Woods are a pair of sisters who create art, grow their own food, and practice radical homemaking. They designed this Garden Journal to be the type of notebook they'd use themselves.
The Far Woods Nina and Sonya Montenegro, the designers and makers of The Far Woods, are sisters that come from a family full of artists and were always encouraged to express themselves creatively when they were growing up. They now live together on a small organic farm just outside of Portland, OR. Using local and environmentally friendly materials and practices whenever possible, the Montenegro sisters strive to repurpose instead of buying new, believing that a well-made, hand-made, lovingly-made item is better than a shiny-new item. Each product is the result of a personal journey -- one that begins with the sisters discovering an inspiring material, exploring a new process, or feeling moved to highlight an issue they are passionate about.
