From the publisher, Sandra Knauf:
Greenwoman Publishing was founded on three passions: an enthusiasm for gardening and nature, a deep love of garden writing, and a desire to do something that would turn people on to both.
Twenty-five years ago I discovered garden writing through Bonnie Marranca's American Garden Writing. A new world opened up for me through the words of Thomas Jefferson, Alice Morse Earle, J. I. Rodale, Wendell Berry, Allen Lacy, Elizabeth Lawrence, and many others.
I learned that the genre of garden writing was a marriage of Nature and Culture: the beauty, magic, and science of gardening as it connected to history, art, politics, fashion, ecology, philosophy . . . everything!
It made me want to get my hands into the soil, to create my own garden, and, most importantly, to be a better steward of the earth. It made me want to write and publish work that excited others about gardening and the natural world.
Greenwoman Publishing is devoted to green thought in all its forms--fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, biography, art, and comics. We publish a rich variety of new voices and we revisit the classics.
