Our Contributors come from all walks of life, various backgrounds, and upbringing. We have writers hailing from Kenya to Kentucky, from India to Indiana… They bring their voices to express themselves, representing themselves, and celebrating each other. At Garden Spices Magazine we often refer to them as our GARDENERS! We thank each and every one for bringing their unique presence to this online platform celebrating our differences. Enjoy this international feast!
