“From the Ground Up: Issue #1 from Wildlands, Woodlands, Farmlands, and Communities” A note from the editors: "Welcome to the first issue of From the Ground Up—a new quarterly publication from Wildlands, Woodlands, Farmlands & Communities. Our partners throughout New England saw the need to bring together voices whose words, actions, and artistic expressions urge us to think in more holistic and healing ways about the complex climate, biodiversity, and human welfare challenges facing New England—and all who make their homes here. This issue is the start of a conversation. We invite you to explore the interviews, essays, policy updates, artwork, poetry, and more. Please reach out to us to share your reactions and ideas for future issues. With your help, we can continue to expand the chorus of voices needed to safeguard the health, resiliency, and vibrancy of New England’s communities—both human and wild."
