For a decade, I’ve gathered pictures and opinions on Other People’s Gardens, whilst on my gruelling and frequent travels up and down the UK and occasionally further away. During some moments off the road in the same decade, I’ve created a really rather too big garden on an iconic but horticulturally-persecuted fellside in the rather famous English Lake District. But if you want to know more about my garden, you’ll need to go here ‘cos this blog’s about  – well, you get it don’t you?
I’m also the co-creator of a rather special communal harvest garden in east London, called What Will the Harvest Be?
It’s a damn sight easier to get to than my own plot, so if you’re planning a trip anywhere near the 2012 Olympics site soon, do drop by, they’d love to see you.

Who am I ?
Karen Guthrie  – an artist and film-maker. If you insist on a relationship between this blog’s erratic polemic and my ‘real’ work, you can start by looking at some of it here. When not working, sitting on the train or gardening I enjoy food, collecting, keeping unproductive beehives and  wasting time with my ginger cat.
One of my most significant recent achievements is keeping a box of nuka alive for (so far) 16 months. It’s a kind of Japanese pickle culture. Like sourdough or yoghurt. So there.

BTW  – Always happy to hear comments but please keep them relevant 🙂
