This issue of Wilder takes us to Norway’s Svalbard Global Seed Vault and then coasts all the way down to Mexico to check out Xochemilco’s floating garden district with Maureen Gilmer. Renaissance rooftop gardener and Atlantic writer, Annie Novak, shows us how field-to-fork stays alive in the colder months and Portland chef Aaron Woo tell us how he is revolutionizing the vegetarian plate. We wander through the garden with Beginners director Mike Mills' and take a tour of Austin-based musician, Martin Perna's gardens. Before heading inside for the season, we check in with famed horticulturist Yvonne Savio in Los Angeles and two different types of farmers surviving these cold winter months.
Plus, we've got the Wilder regional hort tips, winter-ready recipes, the history of Native American syrup tapping, and instructions on creating your own string garden.
