WILDING AND WONDER

One large British farm has been de-industrialized, modern farming with chemicals and machinery has been abandoned.  There in heavily populated, long populated by people, urbanized and criss-crossed by motorways, nature has been given free rein once again.  Isabella Tree and here husband now tell their story, proud of having rewilded their farm despite widespread condemnation by their farming neighbors.

Also, in Britain, George Monbiot is my favorite environmental writers and a long-time proponent of rewilding.

Here is video of a talk by Monbiot for TED.  Step back, restore large species where they once were.

Perhaps a little rewilding in our living rooms is a worthy start–spare that spider says one expert.
