Seed Magazine Volume 2
Seed is a biannual magazine, edited by Carole Bamford. At its heart is the belief that we need to live sustainably and consciously. It hopes to gently inspire readers to make small changes with their own choices so that together we can have a wider impact on the future of the planet.
This second volume has a strong emphasis on craft and the makers that are helping to shape the future with their vision for a more sustainable way to live.
Artist Spencer Fung reveals why nature provides the tools and the palette for his work. Furniture maker Sebastian Cox discusses his passion for preserving and protecting the environment and how we can inspire other designers to do the same. And Pippa Small talks to us about her ethical jewellery lines, her charitable work and the constraints and challenges of collaborating with artisans in war-torn regions.
Elsewhere, Carole Bamford interviews environmental architect and artist Maya Lin about the role art can play in behavioural change and whether it can serve as a call to action. Buddhist monk Gelong Thubten invites us to examine the human search for happiness, and nutritionist Rhaya Jordan discusses how in nourishing our gut health, we can in turn help influence our mental health. The magazine also celebrates the importance of being conscious of where our food comes from with simple, seasonal recipes focused on reducing food waste.
