The Fall 2011 Edition of Soiled and Seeded is OUT!

We are delighted to announce the release of Soiled and Seeded’s fifth online issue. As always we present a diverse collection of ideas, essays and portraits. Beyond our own neighborhoods we are committed to providing stories from around the world – highlighting communities, inspired initiatives and profiling gardens and gardeners.

The fall edition also marks our one-year anniversary. Since its inception, Soiled and Seeded has worked to expand the idea of gardens and gardening. We aim to move past aesthetics and design, and turn the conversation towards the broader issues of the environment, sustainability, food and our relationship to the natural world. We also believe that many different communities can contribute to this conversation.

We’d like to thank all of our contributors; together they represent an interdisciplinary group of writers, artists, educators, scientists and photographers – from around the world.
