A Feminine Landscape with Alys Fowler
How can we connect with home as the place which cares and provides for us. We are joined by Guardian columnist and former Gardeners' World presenter, Alys Fowler, who delves deep with us into the nurturing hospitality of wild land.

In this chat, we discuss food writing, traditional home cooking, new ways of talking about nature, intersectional feminism, and abandoning control for an Earth that keeps on giving...
'If you want to have a non-abusive, non-coercive relationship with the land, you have to start with your own species'

About the show
We offer a series of conversations to tap into the wildness within ourselves and to uncover what is possible when we do. It is our hope that through the WorldWild Podcast we can contribute to the revitalisation of wild food culture and conversation around the world.
Through people who know their landscapes intimately, we gather the threads to weave a rich tapestry. Piece by piece the vision of a wilder world comes into view. The wild embrace of nature welcomes us back and offers us a seat at the table. A feast, no less!
