WORKING WITH NATURE, WORKING TOGETHER
At this time of year, it is a particular joy to hear the birdsong that fills the air. The most routine day’s work is enlivened, mundane preoccupations fall away, and your spirits are lifted. Something of that feeling informs this issue: a theme of working in, with and for Nature.
For James Thornton, his spiritual training in Zen Buddhism, together with his background as a lawyer, combined to inspire him to dedicate his professional life to environmental law. For Tony Juniper, a passion for conservation and a lengthy career as an environmental campaigner have led him to believe that we can best defend the natural world if we appreciate how central it is to our own survival.
But it is not only in our relations with the natural world that we must make connections. It is in how we relate to one another. So in this issue, Guy Singh-Watson, one of Britain’s most successful organic farmers, explains why he is turning his business into a cooperative, and Darren McGarvey reports on the emergence of new forms of community activism in inner-city Glasgow.
As always, there is an artistic dimension to these new departures, these new connections. Justine Reilly talks about the work of Leah Barclay, bringing the sounds of the natural world to new audiences. And we look at the way the artist Garry Fabian Miller has married techniques of camera-less photography and textile design to evoke a deep relationship with the natural world.
As we move with the seasons, we hope you enjoy the connections we make.
