2017 brings a number of really exciting new developments and some old favourites. I am fast coming to the end of my latest book Our Place, a personal journey into the history of British environmentalism.


In May I look forward to teaching again at Lumb Bank but this time with Kathleen Jamie, whose work I admire enormously. Then in August/September I am working with the equally wonderful Sara Maitland at Moniack Mhor, near Inverness. More details can be found on both of these at Talks and Teaching.


In July I have talks in Brighton's Booth Museum and return to the glorious Wealden Festival. Finally October brings a week-long course in conjunction with the Kelseys of Casa Rural el Recuerdo, in Extremadura in south-west Spain. If you're interested in this then please click here.

Blackwater Blog is an online scrapbook of words and pictures about anything in nature from springtails to sparrowhawks.


It can be read if you click here, but every few weeks I post a Photo of the Month, a new image of something important. Last month we spent the morning with the children of a Greek Goddess Find out why here.
