If you think all gardening magazines are staid and traditional, think again. The recently launched Wilder Quarterly is for "contemporary growers"—all those green thumbs, rooftop gardeners, cooks and foodies, seed savers, architects, botanists, horticulturists, innovators, amateurs and experts who are making the most of the non-traditional space they've been given. It was founded by Celestine Maddy, a 33-year-old amateur gardener from Brooklyn, who was frustrated by how advanced and/or boring she found most gardening and horticulture publications.
Curious as to what you'll find in the inaugural issue?
The Autumn 2011 issue of Wilder Quarterly digs into all things autumnal with garden musings by Dominique Browning, seasonal recipes from James Beard-nominee chef Josh Adams, and a fermentation feast at Brooklyn's Vinegar Hill House. Odyssey Bulbs' Russell Stafford shows us his favorite geophytes and mycologist Paul Stamets tells us why mushrooms might save the world. We visit Yves Saint Laurent's Jardin Majorelle in Morocco, New Orleans' aspiring community gardens, and filmmaker Jonathan Caouette's secret garden, before hibernation sets in. And that's not all--we've got best case practices by growing region, cooking and preserving ideas for your at-home harvest, and growing advice for the frostbitten season to come.
Wilder Quarterly is published seasonally. A single issue costs $19, and a one year subscription costs $60. Wilder Quarterly also donates a portion of the subscription price to support the Fresh Air Fund - a not-for-profit that provides free summer camp experiences to more than 1.7 million children from disadvantaged communities.
