Seed is a biannual magazine edited by Carole Bamford. At its heart is the belief that we need to live sustainably and consciously. It hopes to gently inspire readers to make small changes with their own choices so that together we can have a wider impact on the future of the planet.
This third volume celebrates the sanctuary of the outdoors and all that it can do to bolster and support our mental and physical wellbeing. Seed’s writers visit Wildland, a group of Scottish estates marrying tourism with conservation. Aimed at restoring and replenishing the beauty of the Highland landscapes around its remote properties, the company offers escapes anchored in acres of wild beauty. Reflecting the growing enthusiasm for gardening, there are features on how to customise home fabrics or entertain children by making block prints from a garden glut, and reveal what you can plant to grow food throughout the winter months.
Editor Carole Bamford interviews Misan Harriman, the photographer and founder of digital media platform What We Seee, who made history as the first black person to shoot the cover of British Vogue’s September issue. They discuss the power an image can have in bringing about lasting change, as well as the photographer’s own tools for managing mental wellbeing.
Acknowledging the importance of the role our homes has come to play in our lives, renowned architect John Pawson talks about the importance of the spaces we inhabit and the need for considered interiors and homes. And celebrating the importance of being conscious of where our food comes from, we also share simple, seasonal recipes with a focus around reducing food waste.
