Review: Greenwoman Magazine

Many of you know that I do book reviews as a part of Sage’s Blog Tours from time to time. This time, Sage has asked me to review a magazine instead of a book. 

Greenwoman Magazine celebrates garden writing in all its forms: fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, commentary, biography, art, and comics! 
Daring and fun, Greenwoman is for the hip gardener who loves digging into the world of art and environmental thought that underlies gardening."

Greenwoman Magazine is a completely independent, one-woman-owned-and-run publication.  (Well, two-women, when Sandra’s daughter Zora, who is the Deputy Editor, has time from her full-time college work).



I have always enjoyed gardening. When I was young I would help my grandfather plant his vegetable garden, and then help him pick the veggies when they were ripe. Those are some of my favorite childhood memories. Reading the stories and articles in this magazine brought back some of those memories. 

The entire magazine was a wonderful read. I particularly enjoyed the fictional pieces. “Diary Of a Garden Goddess” was a fun read. 

One of my favorite short stories was “A Generous Season”.

"We’ve warned friends to watch out, that the squash vines may be growing faster than they can run! Savvy friends visiting our ranch know about our squash problem and lock their cars, lest their back seats somehow mysteriously become filled with zucchini, neatly stacked like cord wood.”




Another of my favorite snippets of the magazine was this picture: 


I think I would like to print and hang this in my kitchen. 


There really wasn’t a part of Greenwoman Magazine that I didn’t enjoy. There are so many contributors it takes three full pages to list them! It’s refreshing to read quality content and not have to flip through pages and pages of advertisements to find it. 

This wonderful magazine is available in PDF format for less than $3 an issue. 
You can order your copy on the Greenwoman Magazine website.

You can also visit her on Facebook!
