As we walk our dogs every day and roam around the city in our truck, we forage and wild craft, rummage, pick and groom: plants, trees and shrubs and many weeds. Louisiana is a very rich and productive land for plant growth. There is much neglected and abandoned property and large amounts of public green space and neutral ground. We add these collections to our list of plants and often use them in our magical creations. We list every plant with common and botanical name on every instruction insert in every product. Our aim is to promote knowledge and concern for native plants, immigrant species, southern United States foraging resources, medicinal healing weeds, and magical uses for all plants. We research extensively the plants we grow and gather. We pass this knowledge on to our clients with every product.
Magically, Ed and Elie live a lifestyle that is conducive to working according to a planetary and seasonal schedule. We study and implement Rudolf Steiner's Biodynamic gardening methods and we grow everything in organic soil blends. We add Mississippi river water to our herbs when we water. We gather a little graveyard dirt, plant stones and crystals in the garden, feed the crows and toads and pray at altars of the Old Gods. We follow a simple astrological and ritual magic method that is in general alignment with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and British Traditional Witchcraft practices.
