It was only yesterday that we learned of the hidden power of the peatland - the erased and excavated, mystical, and animated peatland. It took just one story on a bog, one scientific core of the peat earth and a few print-out graphs floating in the wind, and the seed of the project was planted. Then, before we knew it, the story seeds were surrounding us and we all became well and truly brain-deep in boggy shoots.
Now we're busy working on a peatland paradigm shift. We want to shine a light on the way we look at, use, and imagine peatlands.
We strongly believe in the power of community, and believe it is one of the best tools in our shed to tackle the multitude of crises we are facing. Crises in our climate, in biodiversity, in health, in imagination, and in our relationship with the nature around us, in us, and with us on this weird and wonderful planet.
This platform is a space of connection, inspiration, and gathering where knowledge and interests can be shared between those with any degree of involvement and curiosity in peatlands.
We all have so much to learn from, share with, and fight for with one another. We look forward to meeting you all.
