A Food Renaissance

issue cover 294 Buy this issue Join Resurgence Free e-cards

The January/February 2016 issue of Resurgence & Ecologist has a feast of good reading to take you into the New Year and beyond.

Madeleine Bunting reports on moves to encourage the practice of mindfulness, while Rupert Sheldrake celebrates sacred song and where to find it. In his Keynotes essay, Glenn Aparicio Parry argues that both ancient wisdom and modern scientific discovery can help us to live more holistically.

We look at new trends in food and farming that respect and work 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 hope you find much to enjoy in this festive issue of Resurgence & Ecologist.
