Conceived and written by award-winning gardener and food writer Lia Leendertz 'The Almanac' is reviving the tradition of the rural almanac, connecting you with the months and seasons of the year via moon-gazing, foraging, feast days, seasonal eating, meteor-spotting, tides, produce, traditional music and gardening. Creatively conceived as well to celebrate illustration, each year we collaborate with a new artist. The first 2018 edition was illustrated by Emma Dibben, 2019 celebrates the craft of lino cutting through the work of the Celia Hart, 2020 by artist and printmaker Julia McKenzie, 2021 Helen Cann, 2022 printer Harry Brockway and 2023 Whooli Chen.
