Little Piece of Paradise Farm

At Little Piece of Paradise Farm we grow certified organic herbs in Winlaw, BC, Canada. We also hand harvest, cut and remove stems by hand and dry in small batches. All this to ensure that herbs retain flavour and shape and you get the best quality dried herbs possible.

Following regenerative farming practices, like preparing new beds by having our sheep, goats and pigs eat and dig up the land, and trying to be self-sufficient by growing our food and eating our animals, we really are trying to supply you with the most ethical and sustainable herbs possible.

Our Culinary and Medicinal herbs are grown in this way to provide you with the most aroma, flavour and health benefits and to give back to nature in the process.

Book Bundles

Bookbundles provides guidance for those looking to self-publish. Abrah Arneson’s trust in my ability to guide, support and offer advice allowed me to Copy Edit, Format, help with Blurb Writing and Cover design, her latest book The Weaving: Plants, Planets, and People, An Exploration Through Time until the final click of ‘published’.

My 35 years as a meditation teacher infuses every detail of my service to others who wish to write books. My award-winning memoir My Impossible Life trauma travel & transcendence demonstrates my ability to write, edit and publish to professional standards. My other works of non-fiction The Healing Power of Mind and Medicine Mind Buddha Mind further showcase my expertise.

As a therapist of 23 years and a writer of over 5 decades, I know how deeply authors feel about their work; I understand the relationship between identity, writing and frustration; I have been in the troughs, and seen them through to the next crest.

Best of all those who choose for their editing, formatting, blurb writing, self-publishing completion will be treated to my personal attention. Bookbundles is a boutique agency, and as such I only take on a very few clients at a time.
