Listen To the Trees

We have recently returned from a Maine island sanctuary & reading retreat where we devoured books and local food in more or less equal abundance. Among the books, we highly recommend To Speak For the Trees by the brave and brilliant Diana Beresford-Kroeger.

We relay the introduction from the publisher’s website below, with a single image added by DP.

Radical Wisdom

Digging more deeply into the theme of the sentient forest, we turn to an essay by ecologist Suzanne Simard published in 2015 by SGI Quarterly, excerpted below. The images are from the studio of Jorge Mayet.
