Wilder - Summer Issue 3
Wilder Quarterly is a publication for people enthralled by the natural world. In the pages you’ll find green thumbs, rooftop gardeners, foodies and chefs, seed savers, architects, hobby farmers, horticulturalists, innovators, amateurs, and experts. Just your everyday mix of growing enthusiasts. Wilder is ‘life through the lens of the growing world’— indoors and out, culture, travel, food and design. Published seasonally for this generation of growers and the next.
The 2012 Summer issue of Wilder Quarterly takes a look at indie-darling Melanie Lynskey’s passion for home-grown veggies, examines the mystical practice of dowsing and goes foraging for delectable edibles in suburban Texas with Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen. We check in around the globe with the experimental garden eatery of chef Andoni Aduriz in San Sebastian, Spain, visit farm and garden expert––and blueberry connoisseur––Lee Reich in upstate New York and do a sound check with Los Angeles-based plant musician Mileece. As the season heats up, we share instructions on making your own backyard a wilderness, a recipe for Rosemary ice cream with James Beard Award winning chef Christina Tosi, get advice on community-building with artist Dustin Yellin and give you loads of tips and tricks for keeping your cool through the summer swelter. Let the Dog Days begin!
