The day that Soiled and Seeded designs and grows its own garden we will generally be restricted to USDA hardiness zone 5, but for now, no such limitations exist on our stories, ideas, histories and broad gardening practices. Our exposure is decidedly global.

Beyond our own neighborhoods we are committed to providing stories from around the world - highlighting communities, inspired initiatives, profiling gardeners and celebrating gardening heritage.

It has been an exciting and spirited operation driving this magazine off the ground. We would like to thank all of you for your support.
