Blog written by Marta Puig
I started this Blog in October 2014. And I call it The Landwoman. The reason is I somehow felt identify with a publication called The Landswoman (with «s»). This publications idea was to promote and help thousands of women (and raise awareness upon men) on the importance of assuming men roles during the Great War.
The motto, on those times, was «Dig For Victory», and with their work, there is no doubt, they helped to win the war. But the reality goes far beyond, because the great challenge of these women, was not only to become responsible of the fields or the work in the factories, or win the war, thereafter, women were to be free.
Why do I feel identify? Because this made everyone aware of a new way of living.
My dream is to bring gardens and landscape closer to people and promote awareness of it’s importance in our lives. After all is part of our daily life, and it’s all what we’ve got. So we must live it to it’s full potential. This is nothing new, but it’s to be rediscover.
My aim is to speak about landscape, gardens & design. I hope it to be a window to the world of landscape and gardens, their poetry, their “masters” and their history. And certainly, also about the world around us, because what is landscape otherwise?
