Wild Foresting (PDF)
Practicing Nature's Wisdom
There is an emerging revolution in wild forest relationships. Wild foresting has evolved from ecoforestry, going far beyond merely having a minimum impact on the world, to sustaining and promoting forest health, and biological and cultural diversity. Wild foresting promotes the responsible use of forests, connects indigenous knowledge systems and unites a great variety of local practices tailored to unique forests around the world.
Prize-winning experts dedicated to reconciliation in human-wild forest relationships have contributed their stories to this comprehensive, in-depth anthology. The authors give accounts of how wild foresting is being practiced around the world, with such diverse activities as:
- Wild farming
- Wild crafting
- Adventure therapy
- Ecosystem restoration
Wild Foresting is presented in eight thematic sections that discuss topics as varied as tree meditation, wild humans, and ecophobia. Case studies from the Amazon, Australia, Norway and Thailand illustrate how wild foresting principles are adapted to different cultures and how emerging practices are fusing ancient knowledge systems with contemporary ecological studies.
A fascinating and informative walk in the woods for everyone concerned about biodiversity, ancient forests, indigenous cultures and endangered species.
