This anthology is the first project in the New Perennials Publishing venture. Our goal is to provide thoughtful analyses on crucial social/ecological questions, all at no cost to readers. Our hope is that students and teachers—both in high schools and universities—will find these essays challenging and useful in their work. Beyond the classroom, we believe readers who are concerned about the state of the world will find the anthology compelling.

Living Perenniality covers a lot of ground—from the many lives of plants to the origins of agriculture to the creative power of biological consciousness to think anew. Craig Holdrege’s eloquent prose reflects his gifts as an educator, naturalist, and philosopher of science. Co-founder of the Nature Institute, an organization dedicated to the development of whole-organism studies, Holdrege embraces what Goethe called “delicate empiricism.” Recommended for K-12 and undergraduate educators and students, the backyard gardener, and all who are involved in regenerative practices in agriculture.
