Wes Jackson

Becoming Native to This Place by Wes JacksonIn six compelling essays, Wes Jackson lays the foundation for a new farming economy grounded in nature's principles and located in dying small towns and rural communities.

Nature as Measure

Wes Jackson

Nature as Measure by Wes JacksonWes Jackson can teach us many things about the land soil and conservation but what most resonates is this: The ecosphere is self-regulating and as often as we attempt to understand it we are not its builders and our manuals will often be faulty. The only responsible way to learn the nuances of the land is to study the soil and vegetation in their natural state and pass this knowledge on to future generations.
