Other writing : books, magazines, articles

I write about no dig gardening, growing year round, seasonal recipes and other sustainable homesteading and self sufficiency topics – all based on my own experience over 30+ years of growing food. Please contact me if you would like to discuss commissioning an article or blog.

Happy with my books

I write regular monthly features for Kitchen Garden Magazine (since 2019), and freelance articles for magazines and other publications including Grow Your Own Magazine, Bloom, Farm Girl USA, Women’s Own, Permaculture Magazine, The Organic Way, Daily Express, Growing Green.

My photographs have been published in newspapers and magazines worldwide, including National Geographic, Somerset Life and Gardener’s World Magazine, also many of Charles’ books – as well as my own work which is almost entirely illustrated by my photographs.

I wrote recipes for Chapter 10 in the 2018 edition of Charles Dowding’s Salad Leaves for All Seasons.

This was republished as “Grow Organic Salad Leaves and Greens” in October 2021.

“Here is all the information you need for productive, healthy and tasty salads.  Learn the subtleties of salad seasons and virtues of different leaves throughout the year.  And when your table is groaning with the abundance of your harvests, there are delicious and imaginative recipes by Stephanie Hafferty, exploiting the fantastic flavours, colour and vitality of home grown salad leaves.”

I wrote two articles for Mark Boyle’s Moneyless Manifesto and was consulting editor for Charles Dowding’s Vegetable Diary (finalist for Practical Gardening Book of the Year) and his yearly calendars.
