Thought you guys might like this - Abundant Living in the Coming Age of the Tree



Here's the blurb -

"Kathleen Jannaway's classic text sets out the practical and philosophical basis for ecological veganism – that we can feed the world healthily and compassionately and protect the planet with a diverse, mostly home grown, plant-based diet that includes tree crops – from the Movement of Compassionate Living http://www.mclveganway.org.uk "We are faced with the challenge of providing for the needs of a rapidly increasing world population from the diminishing resources of a finite and endangered planet. Fundamental changes in the values and practices of the dominant world system, which has created a situation in which millions of people and animals already suffer extreme deprivation and die prematurely, is essential. What is needed is a trend towards compassionate living the vegan way, with the emphasis on the use of trees and their products. As people face the challenge of environmental crises, as the supreme importance of using awesome intellectual powers with compassion for all sentient beings is realised, an evolutionary leap will be achieved. An era of truly abundant living will dawn in which humans, at peace with themselves, with each other and with all living creatures, will reach heights of creativity as yet unimagined." Abundant Living in the Coming Age of the Tree - 1991"

Thanks for the post Burra - one of the most important books ever written in my opinion, it was a huge influence on my thinking about both veganism and permaculture, and Kathleen Jannaway was an amazing woman! Here is a blog post I wrote about her on the occasion of the centenary of her birth, together with another of her publications, 'First Hand First Rate', plus a Youtube video of what remains to me one of the best documentaries putting forward the vegan case, even though it does look rather dated by today's standards, the content is still first rate!

That's a wonderful blog Graham.

I've embedded the youtube video here. I see what you mean about it looking rather dated!
