This photo series was commissioned by Open Eye Gallery for their LOOK Climate Photo Lab 2022 and Groundwork UK – while I was working for them as an Environmental Projects Assistant at a community garden that they run in the south of Liverpool called Grow Speke.
I cycled to several different community food gardens around the Liverpool City Region, those being: Growing Sudley, Hope Community Garden, Grow Speke, Faiths4Change, Squash, South Park Community Garden, North Park Community Garden, and Friends of Everton Park.
I met many friendly and inspiring gardeners. And of those many I captured just under 70 portraits and interviews.
You can click on each portrait to read their stories.
You can also read an article I wrote for gal-dem related to this series.
