SUE JACKSON Therapist | Writer | Photographer | Activist

An avid blogger for the last fifteen years, I believe in the power of the word to change the world. I have participated in, and reported on, a range of protests during this period, including the successful East-West Link campaign and, more recently, our wonderful, home-grown Extinction Rebellion (XR). If you believe, like I do, that it is time for ordinary people to rise up in defence of the planet, I encourage you to explore this blog, share it with your networks, and – of course – take action.

A hive of activity

The last few weeks have been particuarly productive ones for me.
I have had an article on food swaps - 'One Good Turn-ip Deserves Another' published in the latest Earth Garden Magazine and another on permacultural responses to pesky possums - 'Possum Magic' - featured in the biannual book Back Yard Farmer put out by Earth Garden Books.

I have also had an article on the world-wide bees crisis published in The Big Issue. To learn more about The Big Issue click here.
All of a sudden there seems to be lots of publisher interest in pieces on environmental themes. I must have read five articles on bees alone in the newspaper over the last few weeks. Clearly the Zeitgeist is changing rapidly; maybe we will be able to adapt quickly enough to avert disaster after all.
