KINFOLKS NEW BOOK FOCUS ON THE 

HEALING EFFECTS OF GREEN SPACES

INSPIRATION


Caring for plants is the best way to learn how to care for yourself", says Amsterdam-based horticulturalist Monai Nailah McCullough, also known as "plant mom", in Kinfolk's new book on gardens.

          This is something that many have discovered to be true in recent months as they found themselves - perhaps for the first time - turning to gardens, window boxes and pot plants for solace during lockdown.

WORDS

Miranda Bryant

For those looking to incorporate more of the natural world into day-to-day life, the Newly launched Kinfolk Garden Is an open invitation, inspiring the reader to engage with nature—to care for it, create with it and cultivate new relationships around it. 

The book offers a mixture of inspiration and practical tips. Split into three sections - care, creativity and community - it is told through the stories of 30 people from around the world including Marrakech-based garden designer and perfumer Abderrazzak Benchaâbane, LA florist Maurice Harris, architect Linda Taalman, who built a self-sufficient glass home in the Californian desert, and rooftop community farm ØsterGRO in Copenhagen. There is also advice from Darryl Cheng, founder of House Plant Journal, and "accidental florist" Amy Merrick.

Visual inspiration comes in the form of pictures by Sarah Blais, who last year won the British Journal of Photography's Female in Focus award, and beautiful floral illustrations from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
