Summary

How urban spaces are finding new life through communities of gardeners, cooks, ceramicists, and creatives.

“Rochester Square is an oasis between the trundling traffic of Camden Road and busy York Way that welcomes people of all ages, at all hours and in all weathers, to be together to grow and make things. The three animating words—clay, food, and garden—summon the organism that Francesca Anfossi and Eric Wragge have fostered. The square has become a nest of creativity that extends an invitation to dwell, make, and be happy. In this book, you will find excellently unusual ways of preparing food, examples of many of the wondrous things made and the thoughts and passionate solidarity of neighbours and friends.”—Antony Gormley
