Global Field

Here we expand the interests of the project by profiling living fields across the world. Articles will be wide ranging yet all will touch on the sustainable use of natural resources and the need of people to get something useful from the field or landscape while keeping it healthy.

Water field

Farming and wild-harvesting in the wet.  We begin with Inle in Burma (Myanmar), a large inland lake system that has expanded the high-input growing of vegetables in recent decades and continue with a look at wetland rice. More at Water-field.

Urban field

Links between cities and the land, through the ages, beginning with a couple of articles on Greece – the wild plants of the Acropolis and Ancient Messene – then a look at a quirky link between the River Tay’s own Dundee and the Mekong in South-East Asia. More at Urban field.
