Magda is a poet, witch and scrap-gardener…

Born and raised in London, Magda is currently living in the mountains of Colorado, on unceded Ute land, where she is apprenticing on a seed farm. Her passion for climate justice, plant-based education are matched by her interest in tarot, traditional food practices and witchy shit.

She writes Scrap Kitchen a weekly newsletter that delves into foraging, climate adaptation, food waste and tarot. Sign up to receive a Monday morning dose of recipes, plants and justice…
