Alice Vincent: Rewilding a Life

Asset 2

Canongate Presents

Alice Vincent, author of Rootbound: Rewilding a Life and founder of Noughticulture. When Alice suddenly finds herself uprooted, heartbroken, grieving and living out of a suitcase in her late twenties, she begins planting seeds. She nurtures pot plants and vines on windowsills and draining boards, filling her many temporary London homes with green. As the months pass, and with each unfurling petal and budding leaf, she begins to come back to life.

Alice’s memoir Rootbound explores how a whole new generation are discovering the power of plants, and how bringing a little bit of the outside in can help us find our feet in a world spinning far too fast.

Alice Vincent is Features Editor at Penguin Books, having previously worked as a writer and editor on the arts desk of the Telegraph. After teaching herself to garden in 2014, Alice started to share her adventures in urban gardening through Noughticulture, a newsletter and Instagram account, as well as in a column for the Telegraph.
