The new issue of Resurgence & Ecologist is now out - catch up with the latest articles online

Friends of Resurgence

The January/February 2016 issue of Resurgence & Ecologist looks at new trends in food and farming, working with Nature, not against it.

Vandana Shiva explains why the concept of dharma should be applied to agricultural practice, Liz Ware introduces a new method of farming from Japan based on trusting the soil, and we feature an interview with Helen Browning, chief executive of the Soil Association.

As always, the arts coverage is broad and inspiring - from Matt Harvey's exercise in crowd-sourced poetry, to Adam Feinstein's study of the verse of Pablo Neruda, to the retrospective exhibition of the artist David Jones.   

We also cover mindfulness, sacred song, and how science and ancient wisdom can conspire to help us live more holistic lives.  

Here are a few highlights from the new issue of Resurgence & Ecologist for you to enjoy...
