On the Necessity of Gardening tells the story of the garden as a rich source of inspiration. Through many different essays and an extensive abecedarium, this book reflects on the garden as a metaphor for society, through concepts such as botanomania and capitalocene, from guerrilla gardening to queer ecology and zen garden.
For centuries, the garden has been regarded as a mirror of society, a microcosm, in which the broader relationships between nature and culture are played out on small scale. From this long cultural tradition also raises a call for a new awareness of our relationship with the Earth.
Over the years, artists, writers, poets and thinkers have each described, depicted and designed the garden in different ways. However, the garden is not just a neutral place and intended solely for personal pastime, it is a place where the world manifests itself and where the relationship between culture and nature is expressed.
