Helen Babbs is an author, writer, editor and journalist, with a particular interest in the arts, the urban, the wild and London. She works with words, audio and images.
'My Garden, the City and Me: Rooftop Adventures in the Wilds of London' is her first book. Beautifully written and illustrated, it's about the glory of growing things, urban nature and a side of London that's not often explored.
Her tiny rooftop garden is the main character in a book that reveals how much wildlife a city can support, and inspires readers to see built-up spaces in new ways. It's also an ode to how satisfying urban gardening can be, no matter how hopeless at it you are.
