Resilience, Issue 38 – A Place Worth Calling Home

October 2012

Sustainability. Adaptation. Mitigation. Local. Grassfed.
These words, so much in the news today across the globe, barely registered on people’s radar screens fteen years ago. For example, when we founded the Quivira Coalition in 1997, we were focused on peace-making, collaboration, land health and good stewardship. Issues such as climate change, local food production, grassfed meat and other “modern” concerns, were rarely discussed. That’s not the case anymore. Soon these words will require a new conservation paradigm; one that combines the ecological, the economic and the social.
Fortunately, one is emerging, led by new agrarians.

Quivira's annual print newsletter, Resilience, has served as a source for producer-driven rangeland science, a place for stories and reflections from our community, and resource on implementation of regenerative agriculture on arid lands since the start of Quivira. When you click on the individual issues, you will be able to read the complete publication or download the pdf. Sort the issues by topic if you'd like.
