In the current issue

In the July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we focus on Food! Our Food issue includes a lengthy interview with the chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, whose latest campaign extols the virtues and environmental advantages of moving to a largely vegetable-based diet.

The food and farming theme continues throughout the issue, including articles by Sue Pritchard on the opportunity to reform environmental policy in the light of Brexit; Herbert Girardet on the need for regenerative action in city and countryside alike; Miriam Darlington on sustainable beekeeping; and Adam Horovitz on poetry inspired by a year spent on four pasture farms.

Our short story: Poet by the Sea by Ben Okri and illustrated by Rosemary Clunie, sets the tone for a strong Arts and Reviews sections. We include features on Tacita Dean summer exhibitions, a new book on Zen photography and a forthcoming show by environmental artist Liz McGowan. In our review section, we cover books ranging from Mark Cocker's new history of the British countryside, Our Place, Jeremy Lent's ambitious volume on systems theory, The Patterning Instinct, and economist David Pilling's The Growth Delusion.

We hope you find much to enjoy in this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist and take time to explore our featured articles.
