This week on We Dig Plants, Carmen Devito and Alice Marcus-Krieg dig into the world of garden writing and self-publishing with Sandra and Zora Knauf of Greenwoman Magazine! Greenwoman is published and edited by the mother-daughter duo of Sandra and Zora, and features fiction, poetry, and comics pertaining to gardening and nature. Hear how Sandra fell in love with garden writing, and why she decided to self-publish. How has the literary world shifted towards a botique-publishing model? Hear about Sandra’s idol in Victorian plant enthusiast Ruth Stout, and how Zora explains her mother’s first book, Zera and the Green Man. This program has been brought to you by Fairway Market. Thanks to Idgy Dean for today’s musical break.
“I think that writing about nature and gardening, and getting these stories out there is going to be the thing that saves our environment and promotes good health.” [10:20]
