The Kitchen Garden Between Rationalisation and Ecology: The Eyes of the Gardening Magazines (1950–1999)

Chapter
Part of the Cities and Nature book series (CITIES)

Abstract

Gardening magazines designed to a large public are an interesting testimonial of the advent of ecology if we take into account the valuable advice they provide. It was during the second half of the twentieth century that these magazines a growing importance to ecology, whereas technological progress and the highest agricultural yields were cardinal rules in the years 50 and 60 and to a lesser extent until the 70s, it was only in the 80s that the multiple advantages of organic gardening were recognized. This trend was confirmed in the last decade of the twentieth century and has ever since been considered as a major leading policy for the «green» editorial concept.
