What does your garden mean to you? Is it a place of respite from the busy world, a way to grow your own nutritious, sustainable food, or somewhere to connect to yourself and nature?
With such a great response to our previous community series, Your Questions Answered, we are launching a photo led feature on our readers’ growing spaces. Whether you have a balcony laden with herbs, an eclectic allotment or a vibrant community garden, please share with us a picture with a description of what these places mean to you.
Gardens and growing spaces can be a powerful yet underestimated space for us as individuals and communities, as our most recent cover star Poppy Okotcha said:
“For me, growing offers such an incredible space, not only for personal wellbeing and growth, but also space where we can connect, grow community and grow food, and grow new cultural narratives for how we should live in the world.”
While many of you are busy in the garden at the height of summer, we want to tap into that power and put you, our readers, at the front and centre of Wicked Leeks and share your photos and experiences of growing.
Our readers are an active and valued part of Wicked Leeks. Simply put, you are the reason we exist. To highlight this, we want to make you a more visible part of the magazine.
How to get involved
Please tag us in your photos and description on Twitter @wickedleeksmag or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by the 25th July 2022. Please try to send high-resolution photos so we are able to publish them on the website.
