Talk to the Garden is a project initiated by artist Frances Disley with The Turnpike CIC that was
seeded with a community garden in Leigh, Greater Manchester. This book is an invitation to get to know
the plants on our doorsteps and beyond, imagining the voices of the gardens all around us and the ways
they call upon us to connect with and befriend their wise and wild inhabitants.
