Issue 321
July/August 2020
Recovery Time

issue cover 321

In this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist, we look at the path to recovery. Daniel Christian Wahl writes of a ‘transformative decade’ and the need to change how we are, not just what we do; Vandana Shiva explains why the road ahead must encompass radical change in our food systems; and Laurie King reports from the Shetland Islands on an organic farming project.

Also in this issue: Heather Ackroyd speaks to artists about changing culture; psychologist Steffi Bednarek writes on mental health; and Anne Stobart shares tips on growing medicinal herbs.

Our July/August issue explores the theme of peat: its value for biodiversity and carbon storage, as well as to human history.
