I love detail. I like an intellectual challenge. I garden.
I spend a lot of time asking why things happen. I ask “says who?” a lot. I read obscure horticulture journals, texts about the history of gardening and the small print on the back of packet seeds.
Science, philosophy, sociology, art and just about every other discipline has had its say about gardens, what we grow there and what they mean to us.
Time for a bookish gardener to start making sense of it all.
I’d love you to join me in a celebration of geekiness, one day at a time.
The Geeky Gardener
PS [read at speed, in the style of a political ad disclaimer]: The Geeky Gardener is Anna Evangeli, a former news editor at ABC Science, the Australian national broadcaster’s science website, and science correspondent for Gardening Australia magazine. The Geeky Gardener looks after a lush, inner-city garden in Sydney, Australia. When she’s not geeking or gardening, she teaches journalism at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney.
