Calendula is not only a pretty little flower; it’s also quite hardy and will resurface each spring. However, I don’t grow calendula just because it’s pretty; it has many different uses.
- Sandrine Ferwerda
Sandrine Ferwerda was born in Belgium, where she grew up between horses, dogs and assorted poultry. After getting a degree in sociology, she worked as a personal assistant in Amsterdam when she and her husband decided to pack their things and move to rural Spain. With the help of volunteers, they’re turning their olive & almond farm in the middle of nowhere into a self-sustainable permaculture paradise. When she’s not writing, Sandrine likes to watch plants grow, talk to her chickens and dream about her own herd of alpaca’s.
