Why Women Grow: Stories of Soil, Sisterhood and Survival (Hardback)


Availability: In stock

As someone who has rediscovered my childhood love of growing and nature over the past few years, I was drawn to this book as soon as I saw it was coming out! I have followed the author, Alice Vincent, for a while and listened to her podcast. Women have always gardened, but our stories have been buried with our work. Alice is on a quest to change that. To understand what encourages women to go out, work the soil, plant seeds and nurture them, even when so many other responsibilities sit upon their shoulders. To recover the histories that have been lost among the soil.

Why Women Grow is a much-needed exploration of why women turn to the earth, as gardeners, growers and custodians. This book emerged from a deeply rooted desire to share the stories of women who are silenced and overlooked. In doing so, Alice fosters connections with gardeners that unfurl into a tender exploration of women’s lives, their gardens and what the ground has offered them, with conversations spanning creation and loss, celebration and grief, power, protest, identity and renaissance.

Wise, curious and sensitive, Why Women Grow follows Alice in her search for answers, with inquisitive fronds reaching and curling around the intimate anecdotes of others.
