Just brilliant, such imagination and gorgeous collaging. Linden was kind enough to send a copy of Lughnasadh as well which was just as beautiful and heartfelt, and very relatable. I can imagine referring back to them both sporadically <3

Beautifully crafted magazine: one of a kind! Linden is making unique zines that are works of art while celebrating the essential life force that is soil, and the gold that enriches it, compost. Astute, celebratory, urgent. Thank you.

Quick delivery, can't wait to give it to my sister who's just completed her PhD in soil science. She LOVES soil.

Gorgeously put together, amazing colours. Very poignant message, worth taking your time over. Loved its link to Le Guin.
