I have been waiting very patiently to pick up my copy of this publication, the lovely Wilder Quarterly. Wilder is beautifully styled and speaks to all things plant related and the myriad ways in which people make plants a part of their lives- completely perfect. This is something to be collected.

I do not understand how anyone might dismiss the beauty and intrigue of scent... Scent tells us stories of what surrounds us and what eludes us

The masterful hanging gardens by artists Britta Riley and Rebecca Bray.
The impressive designer Stephanie Smith started a farming project in Joshua Tree. I am hoping we can get out there to see this land before we head back up north. This is very interesting work!

I picked this up a couple months ago as I follow the Greenhorns. They have a strong commitment to new emerging farmers and provide excellent resources for such a small community. There are many, many, many tales of struggle in this book. Although at the end of each farmer's story, there is some sort of "but I couldn't imagine doing anything else in the world" sort of feeling. While farming will never be the easy route for most, I can't help but hope that someday young, small-scale ethical farmers will receive more support, rights and breaks for the work they do.
