I found this distressing article from September about rare and heirloom varieties of orchard fruit dying out in the British Isles. This represents a tragic loss not only of fruit varieties but also of habitat for virtually millions of living things.
I'm a small-scale professional gardener and lover of nature. I'm a film critic, freelance writer and academic who teaches media studies. I'm also a published poet and singer and collector of traditional songs. I enjoy life most of the time and am rarely bored. I'm into sacred sites and earth mysteries. I love visionaries and hate litterbugs.
