This Book Is a Plant

£14.99

We’ve become used to thinking of plants as things for us to use: as food, tools, resources, or just as an attractive background to our own lives. But it’s time to change our minds. New research shows that plants can think, plan – and may even have memories. We share our planet with beings whose potential we have only glimpsed. Featuring the writing of Robin Wall Kimmerer, Susie Orbach and Merlin Sheldrake, ‘This Book is a Plant’ will be your handbook to the new reality: showing you a pathway to completely reimagine your relationship with a different kind of natural world. Delve into a world of moss and fungi: Sheila Watt-Cloutier transports us to the Arctic Spring, Rowan Hisayo Buchanan discovers the pleasures of painting trees, and Rebecca Tamás puts roots down through earth and soil. ‘This Book is a Plant’ is made from paper: it was once part of a tree.
