This calendar is a celebration of seasonal fruit and vegetables, beautifully illustrated with full page original hand carved linocut prints.

The calendar has been created to inspire, encourage and teach you to sow, grow and harvest fresh produce straight from the garden. It also promotes the importance of seasonal, and locally grown organic food and the positive benefits of connecting with nature. Each month will offer advice and practical growing tips to help you plan the year from seed to harvest. A growing chart will also be included at the back of the calendar.

Isla Middleton graduated from Falmouth University in 2016 where she studied textile design, specialising in print.

With a passionate interest in creating aesthetically pleasing textiles for the home, Isla sources inspiration for her designs from plant forms, flowers and natural colours from her immediate surroundings, focusing on shape, form and texture. Her work is driven by the extensive range of possibilities that are just waiting to be explored, from sourcing visual imagery right through to translation onto fabric. Developing drawings through the use of printmaking techniques has become a particularly exciting and compelling method of creating design work for her, adding unique character and movement to her patterns.
