Come on a botanical safari with The Planthunter and meet twenty-four of the most interesting and passionate people living and working with plants in Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America. Your guide is intrepid hunter of stories, plants and ideas, Georgina Reid. Join her and photographer Daniel Shipp as they explore and document the exceptional and ordinary ways people around the world find truth, beauty, purpose and connection through the act of gardening.
From street gardens in Los Angeles to grand country estates in Auckland, from tiny rental gardens in Sydney to plant-packed suburban Brisbane backyards, The Planthunter is a journey underpinned by curiosity and care. The book takes readers into the garden – a place of respite, shelter and connection – and shows that the benefits of connecting with nature through gardening are not restricted by space or experience. They’re found in the simple acts of hands touching earth, seeds being planted and flowers being picked. Gardening is for everyone.
