  • Author: Margaret Rose Realy
  • The first book of its kind to combine gardening and spirituality
  • Offers gardeners spiritual resources and creative projects that connect a love of gardening with their Catholic faith

A Catholic Gardener’s Spiritual Almanac is the first book to offer gardeners spiritual resources and creative projects that connect a love of gardening with their Catholic faith. Margaret Realy, master gardener, retreat leader, and writer, presents this spiritual companion that follows the natural and liturgical seasons and offers gardening tips and easy-to-do projects for each month of the year.

A Catholic Gardener’s Spiritual Almanac explores the riches of the Catholic spiritual tradition in conjunction with all things gardening. Realy offers meditations and scripture passages on a spiritual theme for each month, reflections on the liturgical seasons and feasts, and delightful stories of saints who have special relevance to gardening. Readers also will discover the connection between the conversion of St. Paul and the canna seed, how the flight into Egypt was saved by a miraculous growth of seed, and the many miracles that made St. Brigid patroness of farmers.

Additionally, there are creative ideas for garden design, practical tips and techniques, suggestions on unique plants, and a table of biblical plants. Gardeners at any level of proficiency and dedication will be enchanted by what they find in this extraordinary book.

    A Catholic Gardener's Spiritual Almanac

    I purchased 2 of these books, one for myself and the other for a drawing at our Garden Angels display at our Stewardship Fair. When I opened the package and started to explore it, I had a hard time pulling myself away from it! As people passed by our display and looked over the book, we didn't have to ask if anyone to sign up for the drawing! Many asked where I purchased it, so I put in a good word for The Catholic Company. I would recommend this book for any gardener or Master Gardener.
