The Food Resilience Project is something I wholeheartedly believe in and actively support. As such, I have recently started a group where I live, so that the people within this little pocket of West Sussex can support each other in cultivating homegrown food, by sharing ideas and surplus seeds and produce amongst the community.
In an age when ideological divides are so clearly and ceaselessly widening, Ernest & Noble aspires to elicit the importance of human understanding and tolerance by obliging the reader to reflect upon the fragility of their personal ideologies. It shines a light on the hubris of absolutist belief-systems – specifically militant atheism – and admits of the probable reality of moral nihilism. However, unlike the existentialists of old, it seeks to reveal a possible solution to these issues by evoking the significance and versatility of faith, resilience and compromise, indicting moral reductionism as detrimental to human well-being regardless of whether it is true.
In 2019 I began volunteering at RSPB Broadwater Warren. This wonderful reserve is relatively new to the RSPB estate, yet their impact has been almost immediate. Impressively, they have already seen a return of both nightjar and woodlark. My hope is that the conservationists can increase the bee and butterfly populations at the Warren, but more than anything I would love a breeding population of dartford warbler to take up residence again.
As well as getting my hands dirty on-site, I am also an authorised collector of RSPB pin badge donations.
Related to birds still, I contribute weekly to the British Trust for Ornithology’s Garden BirdWatch and monitor nesting birds for their Nesting Neighbours project, supplying data which is used to inform research on bird populations.
If you have any queries, need a helping hand with a campaign I might be interested in, or whether you just wish to share your ideas, please feel free to get in touch.
