About the Author

Laura Grace Weldon has created collaborative poems with nursing home residents and taught nonviolence using poetry. She lives on Bit of Earth Farm in Ohio where she's a writer, editor, and marginally useful farm wench. She's the author of Free Range Learning and working on her next book, Subversive Cooking. Keep up with her at lauragraceweldon.com/blog-2/

More About the Author

Laura Grace Weldon's happy childhood was marred by the presence of alligators under her bed. No one ever proved they weren't real.

She found peace in a small forest behind her home, where she hoped small woodland creatures might grow to trust her and eat the offerings of food she brought each day. They didn't.

She also sought refuge in books, happily bringing home dozens each week from that heavenly realm called The Library. When told, "get your nose out of that book and go outside" she rode her trusty pink bike for hours. Quite regularly she discovered the thrill of getting lost. Back then small girls found their own way home from construction sites, major highways and Lake Erie. The only consequence? A sense of adventure.

The continuing adventure has led Laura to write a book of poetry with nursing home residents, run support groups for abused children, teach nonviolence workshops, develop community enrichment programs and make messy art.

Laura lives on Bit of Earth Farm (BitofEarthFarm.com) with her family. Although she's not a particularly useful farm wench she takes part in raising cows, chickens, produce, honeybees, and the occasional ruckus. In her idle hours she writes essays and articles, edits other people's books, spends time on the blog she said she'd never start, writes poetry, and is slow at work on her next book: Subversive Cooking (subversivecooking.com).

By the way, she's learned that the alligators haunting us are exactly where any of us put them.

Love the poems/stories. Makes me want to go outside, quietly read her words and take in my natural surroundings. I so enjoyed reading her descriptions of the people and places in her world.

When this little book arrived, it made my day. These poems are about ordinary things, like rutabagas and cows, but under the pen of Laura Grace they become alive. Whether the poem be serious or light, you can't help but feel something. Laura Grace's is a word wizard, weaving the poem/story so you feel as if you are right with her, in the garden or on the farm. I hope she keeps writing!

I am not one who regularly reads poetry. Though I appreciate the style I tend more toward other reading. IT was wonderful to find Tending to be authentic, funny, thought provoking and very dear. I would recommend Tending to anyone who wants to sit and escape with lovely words for a while... it will be a delightful respite!

Laura Weldon's writing is engaging with warmth and insight. I read one section every night before I went to sleep and it was a wonderful way to the day. I highly recommend "Tending" for you and those you love.
