Why Women Grow by Alice Vincent 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.

Alice Vincent 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 Vincent in her search for answers, with inquisitive fronds reaching and curling around the intimate anecdotes of others.

‘Both tender yet fierce, Why Women Grow is written with an acute sense of women’s relationship to the land and how vital that is.’ Raynor Winn
